I don't hunt with decoys anymore myself. If you use them on public ground be careful. If ya see someone, whistle or speak in an auditable voice,,,,DO NOT CALL at them. As far as callers I recommend some sort of friction call to start. Learn to condition the caller with sand paper or scotchbrite. If you chose a box, spare the sanding but use a good chalk thats not oil based. I hunt with mouth callers and slates but there are alot of good callers on the market. My favorite being an "ole yeller" by "Knight & Hale" good luck and don't get discouraged.
