Default Goose Calls

I picked up a Sean Mann eastern shoreman and thought it was pretty neat until I talked to a guy who said " if you get a short reed goose call, you'll throw that thing in the garbage". He's a world traveling goose guy and freinds with all the top call makers. It frustrates them when he doesn't use their high dollar calls, but uses a cheap Big River flock talk. He told me to try that because it's so easy to blow.

Well I bought two because they're small and I can't seem to work either one. I'm ready to throw them, but before I do that, I wanted to ask you guys about gathering info on blowing a short reed goose call. I don't really get what the whole back-pressure thing signifies, but I've been playing with the dang thing and I'm starting to get something out of it, but it is nowhere near as easy as the shoreman. What's the trick?

Just like learning to do anything well, you must practice lots. Learning to use a shortreed isn't easy, but it's worth it. Sr's[shortreeds] are much more versitile than flutes or conventional calls.Here's some links to the tips I've used to help me along;

I hope these links help you out, keep practicing, you'll get it.

I've inadvertantly figured out a few things already, but I have no idea where I'm supposed to start so thanks for the sites.

I've got a late season honker hunt opening in a week and I'm pretty wound up.

Thanks again
