Pretty much any box call or slate type call. Actually I would recommend getting a push button box call. Very easy to use and they sound really good.

This is gonna sound strange to some,but why not a mouth call? Everyone who uses one had to start at sometime,so why not right off the bat.If ya have a month or two before the opener in your state then ya got time to learn.The advantages to a mouth call over a friction call will make it worth it.

I would say about anything? Just practice. I am only 16 and I started at ten with a slate call because it was all we had. I know think that is the hardest call but I would practice my slate and diaphram call all by myself for hours!!

Easy yelper is the easiest to use. Box calls are nice> I prefer mouth and slate calls. Practice them often. I usually hit a call or two everyday.

If you want a slate type call, Knight And Hale's 'Ol Yeller is an easy call to run for a beginner and sounds pretty good too. The turkeys seem to like it as much as I do too, and thats what counts!

I don't really think theres an answer to this question. When you buy a call, every call is different. So, you pretty much are a "beginner" with every call.

If you want to use mouth calls, go ahead and buy some. I like Cane Creek's Lost Poult. Its a easy call to learn. The only trick to this call is that it takes very little air pressure.

I'll second that choice as well.

Start with cheap ones of course. That way you won't spend a lot of money on something you don't like and once you get a feel for what works for you, you can shell out some more cash on a decent call. Personally I just buy the cheapest mouth call I can find each year and it seems to work alright.
