Go with the Grounds half breed, I have two of them on my lanyard. One tuned for long distance and one for when they are in close. Heres a pic from one of our hunts. For fifty bucks, you cant go wrong. As far as calling on it, its not bad. Say uuuu!! with alot of pressure while experimenting with the way you have your hands cupped.
I have these as my top two calls - both are on my lanyard - each has different tone and can be used at different times in the call sequences - they are easy to learn to use and very versatile as you become more experienced using them.
I bought a Half-breed last year and it's already out of tune, I sent it to Tim he tuned it, sent it back and the same thing happened again. It my be me, not sure. Probably so. Tricky call, but sounds good when in tune.
Big River flutes sound good if your a begginer. If you want a short read H.S. Struit makes a decent call. If you want to spend some money Foiles SMH $150 or B&W Bull Barrel $125. That's what I blow. :thumbsup:
Although I don't call much I like "clearly the goose talk" call by Tim grounds it's really easy to blow so you can't mess up if you've ever used a call. It also works great even in cold weather that can mess up other calls. My cousin also likes it and he's been calling for a several years he wants to get one himself now. Happy Hunting :getdown:
