I am from Ireland and we have a growing population of feral greater
canadian geese.
I want to get a call and have visited lots of web sites
They all claim to have the best calls. Who are generally excepted as
good call makers over there.what is the difference between short
reed,long reed,and a flute. For instructions on using the call,
is it better to have a demo video or cd?
As I have called a lot of pink foot geese in Scotland and have never
called Canadians before.

I would say flutes are a deeper slower call than short reeds, which tend to be "easier" and faster to blow. They are also blown differently in terms of how you control your hands, tongue, mouth, throat and breath. I would recommend getting a video to start; it will make learning much easier. And, it is much cheaper than getting a call, only to find you don't like it. There are many people who are successful with flutes just like many are successful with short reeds. It is a matter of practice. I don't know what calling for pinks is like but I would pick the type of call that is most similar.

like JJ said each call has its advantages . I personally like the short reed. its made by winglock and find it very easy to blow.nice clean crisp sounds.need to be prepared to spend a little time practicing but well worth it.as far as training videos i would recomend a dvd , sound quality a little better the vhs. happy hunting!!
