Ok so I'm trying to learn how to use a mouth call and it's a pain in the rear. Does anyone have any pointers?

YouTube videos. Lots of them. When I first started learning last year I couldn't even make a sound and now I'm pretty good. Just watch a bunch of videos and practice.

Ok thanks, I started Sunday and I can make sounds that somewhat resemble a turkey after watching videos the last two day, just inconsistent and uncontrolled as to what sound I get.

Practice Practice Practice, and be sure to drink some water, they don't work with a dry mouth.

This and also try some different brands and calls with different number of reeds until you find the one that you like.

Not that it was an expensive call but should I already have problems with the tape coming off

I sorta dry it off stick it in the plastic box then put on shelf. I've only had it since Sunday.

Shouldn't be coming off that soon. I use the same 2 all season long. I would contact the manufacturer..they should want to know they have a tape problem.

I bought a diaphragm(mouth) call that had a instructional CD with it, I took it in my truck and played it and used the call to practice with the dvd. I know people thought I was nuts while driving down the road making all of these crazy sounds but I practiced for a long time until it was time to go hunt this last spring and I did manage to call in 2 toms. One of which my BIL took and the other didn't commit fully so no shot at that cagey old bird. Like was previously said, practice will be your best friend and the birds will dictate what sounds are good and which are not. Good luck in the upcoming season.

When I started using one, I ran it for a whole year before I felt comfortable. I was hunting a wma in Oklahoma where the birds were a little shy and competition was stiff. I felt really good on a slate but, when I figured the reed out whole new game! Practice Practice

Another hint that helped me a lot. Is to bend gently the rigid part of the call so that it curves to fit in the curve of the roof of your mouth.

I started with the flex tone lil' nasty and I think I'm getting decent. I would recommend a batwing cut such as the call I mentioned as I would guess you don't know where the air channel is going to be in your mouth, this call will work for almost everyone it seems.
