COULD NOT THINK OF A BETTER PLACE TO ASK AS I'M SURE SOME OF YOU TURNERS ALSO CONTEST CALL.

WHAT IS THE BEST CALL FOR CONTEST CALLING SHORT REED, FLUTE?

WHICH DO YOU PREFER HI PITCHED OR A LOW PITCHED?

WHAT ARE JUDGES LOOKING FOR?

LOOKING FOR SOME DIFFERNT VIEWS

As a call maker - I would have to say that my calls are the best for contest - LOL
On a more serious note - a good contest call needs all of these:
1) Should be relatively loud - you don't want a soft call - you need to get the judges attention.
2) The call you choose should be capable of making a wide variety of notes - but from the contests I've been to - the call needs to have a good low tone to it.
3) You need to be very confident in your call. Practice Practice Practice. Most calls will suit the contest ring - I have seen wood calls, acrylic calls and poly calls all win at different times. You just need to become comfortable with the call in hand.
4) Short Reeds are probably the favorite these days. People have figured out that a Short Reed goose call can make every sound a flute type call can and much more.

Hope this helps

I've heard the guys at the goose calling contests with there goose calls, and I can make the exact same calls with my throat down to the tee and mabye even better. I can call snows and canada's, even ducks. I'm a native and have been doing this since I was 7.
