A plain double reeded call makes about the easiest turkey sounds. Stay away from all the split reed and cut type calls until you get more comfortable with a double and you'll be ok.

I like Quaker Boy calls for their comfort. HS Strut makes a real nice double reed that would work for you. Last year I started playing with some Primos calls and I found a couple that really worked well for me. The latex they are using seems to be very durable.

I haven't tried them yet, but HS came out with a new latex this year that is supposed to be much better in battling the reeds sticking together and is also supposed to be very, very durable. I will try a couple.

Not every call fits every mouth. There are different frame sizes and the tapes are cut differently too. Half the battle is getting one that fits your mouth right.

Try calls with different frame sizes to get one that seats in your mouth right. I have a couple Preston Pittman calls that are just about too big for me, and I have a Quaker Boy that's too small. I have a hard time with these calls. I can blow them, but I have a hard time really gettin on them if you know what I mean. M.A.D. and Cane Creek calls fit my mouth the best. Woodhaven's are pretty good too.

After that you have to make sure you get a good seal with the tape and the top of your mouth. If you don't get a good seal you'll never get a decent sound. Trim it to fit your mouth so you don't have too much.

For me, a double reed with a split on top is easiest to blow (like this one (http://canecreekcalls.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1&products_id=7)
They seem a little more forgiving to me. Make sure you store your calls with something to separate the reeds, like a toothpick. If the reeds are stuck together you won't get a good sound until you blow them unstuck or pull them apart.

The easiest I've ever had to blow are the Butski's Cuttin' Light models. Now I mostly use Woodhaven mouth calls since I can't find the Butski calls locally.

PGC calls are awesome and made in Dierks Ar.
I think that Gander mountain sells them also.

Try the Moneymaker model.:thumb:

You really have to try a bunch since there are many different sizes, the stiffness of the tape varies, etc... Wait til after season, go into Wal-Mart and you can buy all them you want to try for cheap.
That said, the 2 I used the most last year:
Knight Hale (Maroon Tape with a yellow reed)
Yellow Yelper double reed

The Yellow Yelper calls are also an Arkansas product.

Plus, the guy that makes them is a heck of a nice guy. That's probably 3/4 of the reason I still go the Big Buck Classic.
I've never met the guy but his calls are sold locally and I usually buy at least one every year.
Does he make any friction calls or just mouth calls?

I like Primos Deadly Double and the the True Double II for me they work. I bought some other kinds a few years ago and after trying and trying I went on a hunt for my DD and TDII. I ended up finding them at Academy I think and will continue to have some.

Actually I better get a spare. I keep them in the refrigerator all year .....they stay togather real good that way.
