Looking for some clothing / call help

Being i just got into goose hunting last year i don't have any waterfowl clothing and I was wondering if any of you guys had anything used in decent shape that you would be looking to get rid of. It would need to be XL or bigger, I am 6'4.  If you got anything gloves shirt pants anything that i would be able to use shoot me a PM. Also, I only have 1 call so far what would be a good goose call that would be good for a beginner that isnt going to cost me a arm and a leg. Thanks, Ed

    Save your money and buy an acrylic call. If not there are some decent poly calls, RNT Goozilla, i think there 20 bucks or so, good starter for the money. Check out waterfowl forums, you can buy top end calls for 60-100 bucks all day. I am a staffer for Foiles and love their calls, operator friendly, wide range of calls to fit your calling need, I've blown every manufacture there is, its just what I like. Just about every company makes great calls, Rnt, Zink, Lynch Mob, Field Proven, Big Seans CC, tons of good calls out there. Go to stores and shows and get a feel for some, dont be afraid to ask questions and dont be afraid to try a call out, everyone starts somewhere. Learn how to tune your calls, if you dont know how you will never get anywhere with a out of tune call. If your ever in Erie, shoot me a pm, I can meet up with you somewhere and try to help you out.

    The Lord has blessed us all today... It's just that he has been particularly good to me.

    Eman,
    I'll reiterate what Krott had to say.
     
    Being a newbie spend your money on equipment 1st and foremost.
     
     Calls,decoys,etc. should come before any kind of specialized clothing.
    Depending on the type of goose hunting you do 90% of the time will be spent in a blind of some sort. As long as your camo does not clash with the blind it will work.
    I use the same clothing to goose hunt that I wear when deer or turkey hunting. When I was starting out and I needed specialized camo for certian situations I went out and  got some shell clothing to go over my regular camo.( White sweats or tyvek suit for snow)

    If you want help on picking a call or learning on how to blow calls or questions about clothing there is a really good guy working as a zinks vendor at cablela's his name is Luke he is very good I hunt with him and he will tell you whats what. He is going to be there tomorrow and also next weekend. He has helped me out tremendously!  Also listen to Krott he doesn't just kill geese he slaughters them!

    I haven't failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work.

    I will have to stop down there soon. My buddy and I went in there they didnt have many calls at all I actually think that Luke was the guy we talked to. He had longer brown hair? Not too old maybe 25 or so.. Cabelas has a Buck Gardner Grey Ghost Goose Call on sale right now does anyone have a opinion on this call? Thanks

    This guy would of been wearing a zinks shirt doesn't have long hair?  But really you can ask people about calls all you want but in my personal opinion its what ever call fits you what ever call you can blow the best. My one buddy blows a zinks cod I can't, but I found the zinks nos fits me. When I started out I blew a zinks polycarb power clucker its a higher pitch call but really easy to blow and easy on the wallet. Your better calls are acrylic but you also pay more for them. start off small and work up to them. I'm not saying I'm great at calling but I Found what works for me it's deffinitly not something you pick up on in a day.

    Must of been a different guy Blaze, Do you guys use layout blinds? This hobby is getting addicting quick there is so much stuff i need to buy.. My boss is actually one of the presidents of DU and is going to help me out with some dekes. So im going to get some calls and then i wouldnt mind getting a layout blind but we'll see how that goes.

    Yes our crew runs all layout blinds I believe everybody either has a finisher blind or a ghg ground force. I've used the nets and never understood why I didn't get a layout blind, stay dry not laying on the ground and no tangles in the net trying to pull up to shoot. But yes its very addictive and can be a ton of fun.
