Who uses mouthcalls and what kind? I use a couple different Primos calls.
I am pretty lucky. I bought one one day a couple years ago and trimmed a little around the edges. It fit perfect and I picked up very fast. I was pretty much talking turkey within a couple hours.
I know some folks who cannot use one. Their mouth just wont do it. Like I said, i was just lucky.
I practice in the house, when the wife will allow. I also keep one in my truck for driving to work.
I have kind of become used to the Primos calls, but I know there are more really good ones out there.
I usually have to trim the width because my mouth is narrow.
What do you use?

Thats all I use. Lots of good ones out there. Some of my favorites are MAD's, Knight and Hales, H.S Strut, Quaker Boy and Woodhavens. I tend to like almost any 2.5 reed call.

My favorite mouth call was woodhaven and lagacy, but while I was at the convention I purchased a lot of mouth calls from several call makers. The mouth calls I got from RUTNSTRUT are awesome, especially their ghost cut. Their calls have put my other ones I have in the back seat. AND FOR 4 BUCKS! ran a special at the convention ,4 calls for 12 bucks. I will be buying more next year. Haven't checked the price on their website?

I say when you're tryin to learn that any two reed call will do the trick on learning the basics. When you get yourself skilled enough to move into 3 and 4 reed calls that's when things get pretty tricky. I like to keep 2 calls in my mouth at the same time and I have found the Primos calls to be very accomodating as well as plenty realistic sounding. Again, no two turkeys are goin to sound the same and half the excitement of making mouth calls is to try and become your "own" bird. I think you gotta try one of each of the manufacturers and find out whose is most suited to your style of callin. What is good for one may not be good for another. If I find myself with a few spare bucks I like to just randomly pick a mouthcall and see how it goes. I got a fridge full of random calls. If I had to pick one company I sure like Primos though I am diggin some of the Knight and Hale styles recently.

The easiest way to describe. Put the call in the roof of your mouth. Using your tongue put pressure on the reed and blow. The amount of pressure depends on the call. You want to produce one high clear note. Keep practicing that until you can produce and hold that note.
When you have mastered that , while you are making the high note, reduce the pressure on the reed and you will hear it break. Keep practicing that,
When you have mastered that speed up the tempo and it becomes a yelp.
