The Primos Canada Goose Flute looks like a standard goose call, but has unique flexible tubing on the end. Typical flute calls require advanced hand motions to adjust the pitch and sound distribution. The Primos tubing allows the caller to control the pitch without cupping or hand motions, which helps beginners to make advanced calling sounds. The result is a direct increase in the number of geese flying into your decoys.

Items you will need

  • Calling recording
Step 1

Grasp the Primos call with your left hand. Hold the call between your thumb and forefinger where the flex tube meets the hard tube. This leaves your right-hand fingers free to flex the tube. Reverse hands for holding if you are left-handed.

Step 2

Place the mouthpiece against your lips and cup the end of the tube with your right hand. Blow into the mouthpiece to create a low tone.

Step 3

Block half of the mouthpiece opening with your tongue and increase your blowing strength to create a high-pitched sound.

Step 4

Flex the tube upward and adjust the amount of tubing being cupped to fine-tune the pitch. Play a goose-calling recording (see Resources) and imitate the sounds of the call. Practice and repeat the transition between the low and high pitch to imitate the sound of a Canada goose.

Step 5

Use the call as you hide in a blind waiting for the geese to come within shooting range.
