If you must have a flute, try Big River long honker, about $25 with instructional cassette. Great way to get started. You may want to try a short reed, though. Take the plunge, get Dave Smith's Breakthrough II and practice. Winglock Delrin about $60 is probably one of the best values out there.
hey bchunter, i'm just learnin myself! found that the hardest part was getting the call to crack.once i mastered that the voice inflection seemed relatively easy.shaun stahls honker talk is a great tape for reference.i bought a winglock delerin has the most realistic sound out of anythin i've heard so far.
Well I would have to say this is my first yr learning to call I have tried everything From a goose flute to a resonate chamber haydel call( has anyone else ever use this call?) Well I finally stoped lookin when I got the ZINK Paralyzer SR-1 short reed It came with a great instruction video 75 min a little more exspensive but I wish I bought it first would of saved money. I choose the wood for the softer raspy tones really understanable video
hey john i to heard the zink calls and they do sound great
but while searching for my call and asking about them i found that a wooden call will change tones(not always for the good) in different weather like cold and damp. let me know if it really does effect them cause the wooden calls do sound good and i just may try a zink call.
Hey I will! It does come in acrylic I choose the wood one cause in the early and regular season what I hunt is small feilds and a small flooded lake. I wanted the lower raspy sound of wood. are seasons aren't really freezing until the late season if so I will want a acrylic for louder open feild calling Looking to get both also I am up to suggestions on a good open feild call. I do link my paralyzer
I have had trouble with short reeds. I don't know why, but I can't blow them well. I picked up a Lohman Flute at Kmart for $10 and this thing is amazing especially for the price. You just blow and out comes goose sounds almost effortlessly. Check it out!
Ud you wanta good overall call get the Tim Grounds Pro Super Mag. YOu can really get down and dirty with this call all the way from the deepr mellow tones(loud or quiet) to the loud higher toned sounds.
