    So I figured I have some decent calls I should probably learn to use them. Anyone recommend a good instructional dvd that will help get me going

    Looks up FreestyleOutdoors on YouTube. It's a channel so once you get to the channel you will have to click on videos to be able to select which one you want, it has a bunch of videos of Trevor Shanahan instructing how to do various calls... plus it's free. cheers

    Lots of good tapes out there but in less you practice countless hours none will do you much good. I know lots of folks with great DVD's who still sound bad. Practice making the same sounds in as many different tones as you can while changing back pressures before moving on to something new. It can become boring doing the same thing over and over but you are learning new things without even knowing it that will help you with new sounds down the road.
    Their is no way to Chet the call you have to put in the time to figure it out. The tapes above are all pretty good.
    Good luck cheers

    Field Hundall (not sure if I spelled that correct) with Field Proven Calls has 20 videos on YouTube in series. It's a slow painful process the first 7 or 8 videos but it really helps teach air and tongue control. I just started calling this year and of all the videos I watched that was by far the most helpful.

    X2. Keep your calls in your vehicle and practice every day.

    I have both the Bad Grammer CD's and the DVD's. I like the DVD presentation a little better than the CD. The big plus to the CD though is you can use it in your vehicle. cheers
