Just like a duck call, practice practice, practice. Make sure that it's in the right way first, some have a right and wrong side. Then keep it pressed up against the roof of your mouth, and blow short clucks to get started.
I have been using the same diaphram for 12 years. Just find one that you can blow well and practice, practice, practice. Buy a selection of calls from different manufacturers and with different reed cuts and numbers and figure out which ones work best for you. My favorite is a Knight and Hale youth call with 3 reeds and a cut reed. With it I can make very soft clucks and purrs and yelps which are great when a bird is in close. Just find one that you are comfortable with and practice to get better and build your confidence. :thumbsup:
I use the Quakerboy green 4 pack. I don't mind them....the doube reed gives awesome sound and the jagged ridge gives awesome raspy sounds....but I mostly use calls by Knight & Hale! Their calls are always good! :yes:
