I'm a long time lurker on bgh and now a first time poster. I am brand new to coyote hunting and have no experience with calling. Naturally, I ran out and bought a Primos Hot Dog without doing my research first. I havesince been told by a few people that an open reed howler is not the best place to start. I've never used a call before, so when I put my mouth on the reed and blow as the cd indicates, instead of the propper pitch and and drawn out sound it comes out like a cross between a child's plastic play horn, some kind of elk call, and a dry fart (sorry to be disgusting, but that paints a pretty acurate picture!).
So, any ideas what I may be doing wrong? I have several dvds on the way that I hope will help. I have been trying to make a sustained note on the horn, and can sometimes accomplish this, but it still has a very flat sound, nowhere near the siren-like quality the cd indicates. Any thoughts? Thanks a lot in advance.
