It takes some work for a half breed. Tim Grounds reccomends covering the end of the barrel with your first two fingers, leaving about a quarter of it uncovered. Cover with your off hand and move your on hand as you would if you are calling a short reed. I call that way and also as if it were a regular short reed. Work at it a bit and you will get it. Mine goes with me whenever I go into the field.

Good luck

Thanks for the advice I'll give it a try I've been working with it for a couple of days and each day is better than the last so hopefully I'll have it down by the fall.

The Half-breed is a great meet call for what ever size canada. Here in MN we see alot of giants, and I can honestly say many-a goose become table fare with that call. It does require a little different back pressure, but mess with it enough and I'm sure you will like it.

Good luck.
