Primos mother


Recommended Posts

Last year I bought this short reed goose call and cannot get the dang thing to sound anything like a goose. I had a flute type call that is "in a field somewhere" frown.gif that I could fool a few with.

My question is, are the short reeds harder to master, or do I just suck at calling?

Thanks, Jeff

If you've been used to a flute, yes they can be difficult to get the hang of. That call is a pretty good poly call. I have a Foiles Strait Meat and the Mother can do pretty well in comparison. It took me quite awhile to get the hang of a short reed but I will not go back to a flute. Try to find a video on using a short reed and ask questions. If ya have any ? post up hopefully we can help.

I was fairly descent with a flute so I wanted to move on to a more versatile short reed. Wow, it was a tough transition. I thought I was getting ok at it then I went to the Winglock stand at the Game Fair and they put me right back down to square one. I was puffing my cheeks and that is a no, no. Now that I have the proper technique and I have watched "Honker Talk" by Shawn Stahls about 5 times I think I am at least at the level I was at with the flute. I watched the goose calling contest at Sportsman's Warehouse in St. Cloud last weekend and it is truly amazing the sounds that a short reed can make in the hands of a good caller.
