This was my first snow goose call. I wasn't quite sure how to use one, so watched a few videos and picked it up quite easily. This is a very loud call that can reach way out to the far away snow goose flocks. We typically don't see snows on opening weekend so we didn't have any snow decoys out. But we did see one group fly overhead, so I grabbed this call and let out some barks and it turned the snows back toward us! I can't wait to get this call out when the migrating snows start showing up here. The call is easy to blow and very loud.
