I am 15 I am gonna start goose hunting next year. I have been duck hunting for about three years. What would a good beginner call be that isn't over $50 and isn't hard to use? Do I need a flute or a short reed?

Go with a short reed- takes lots of practice but the results are well worth it. Try a Winglock Delrin (about $60) but I bought one on ebay for $40. Also I can highly recommend picking up Dave Smith's CD Breakthrough II, it'll get you started in the right direction. PM if I can help further.

:idea:
Get the damned video-forget the CD---shortreed calling is all about backpressure which is created with your hands---thus not being able to see it is a huge disadvantage to you. Zink has a decent video as does Grounds.

As for learning-get the SR as if you learn to call a SR-you can easily call a flute-but not the other way around. Some learn very easily-some a long time on SR. SR and Flute is a lot different in how you call.

i would recommend the zink little man its a good call plus you can watch fred zinks video that will help you but that cost 130 dollars so i would go wiht the big river long honker its really easy to use and wont freeze up.

If your going to go with a flute, i like the Tim Grounds Guides best flute, because you can take the bell off of the end to get a different pitch from it. Also i would recomend Shawn Stahl's honker talk video

Good Luck with goose huntin hope you love it as much as me

poolar bear is right, short reed is the way to go but u need to be willing to spend the time at it. winglock delerin is what i use love it . i just started blowing short reed this spring. i practice every day!!honker talk , the ancient art of paralizing geese hammerin honkers are all good references.get one watch it and blow along

I second that. Go with the Winglock delrin. it is so easy to blow and sounds awesome. i was just practicing with the call in the field yesterday and had geese coming out of the woodwork. too bad the season isn't in. :roll: figures
