    If you can spread some corn out over a sod farm where there is a little standing open water in January that will "call" them right in!:l :D

    Hey Gander, you might not believe this but a guy I hunted with last Saturday sounded pretty good (clucks only) and guess what he was blowing? You guessed it, a big river flute!:eek:

    ...but now I am using a Buck Gardner Canada Hammer. Only problem is I can't drink beer after the hunt since I'm so tired from lugging out the bodies:D

    Don't let these guys fool you. The big river is a great call and tons of geese died listening to it. A flute in the hands of a great caller is deadly just ask josh neiuller sp?. That kid can flat rock on the sean mann eastern shoreman. A good short reed is deadly as well but i recommend you try before you buy. Go into sportsmans and blow some calls, find one that is tuned easy enough to sound decent on. Grounds calls are great but beginners have a hard time blowing them because they take alot of air but just like any call they can be tuned light.
    My recommendations are

    Giant Killer
    Supermag
    Traffic
    GP

    All of these calls cost about 150 and sound great if you don't want to spend that much I have a canada hammer i will sell you its brand new. Send me 15 bucks and i will tune it how ever you want it.
