Just bought a rnt original goose call and learning how to use it but it seems to take a lot of air. Do all goose calls take that much air or r some easier than others if so which ones. Thanks for the help

It all depends on how it's tuned.

Sean Mann Eastern Shoreman. Called them up and said hey, what about x call vs y call, they asked how fast you need to learn? I said I'll have the call about 4 days before my first goose hunt, he told me he could teach a 10 yr old to blow the eastern shoreman in 5 minutes, the other calls would take a month. I'm not saying I'm any good at it, but I was at least able to add to the chatter on goose hunts.

Like Dave said... the Shoreman or any other flute style goose call will be alot more forgiving than the short reeds.

Totally agree that you can teach a 10 yr old in 5min on a flute style goose call but ain't no way to do that with a short reed, he may learn in a day but not 5min.But if you gain on that short reed then you will never want a flute.

Not all short reed calls take that much air. I started out last year with a goozilla and it took a lot of air so I switched to a Zink power clucker and it takes a lot less air and sounds much better on the low end. I have blown a zink call of death and it takes less air than my pc, I think that is the next one I get but when I got my pc Scheels did not have the COD in stock.

Thanks for the help. The problem isn't so much being able to make the sounds with the rnt its that after a two or three clucks I'm out of air it just takes a lot to break it over. I will try the zink calls thanks again

Just so y'all know the shoreman is built to blow like a short reed . Second if a short reed goose call is hard to break over it either tuned stiff of you are presenting air into the call wrong . I can't take any short reed call on the market and make it stiff or easy to blow all in the tuneing . Brand has very little to do with it .
