What kind of turkey call do you prefer?
I like the mouth calls I have two one is a single the other is a double. I also use a push button box call. But I love the sound from the diapham calls best. I think I spelled it wrong. The turkeys seem to love the sound. They respond better to them. I think they are louder. So the seem to hear them better. Just my 2 cents.
I don't use mouth calls, I almost gaged to death once and I said that was enough. I use mostly glass and slate calls. I change the pitch with different strikers and different pressure. But finding the bird I use my crow call and on private land I use my box call.
Too many toys
I prefer my box, then a slate. I started using diaphram calls this year after practicing with them for the past two or three and wouldn't you know I hit a sour note right as a pair of toms stepped up onto a rise 45 yards away. They walked off parallel and never came any close. Did manage to call a tom in to 20 yards with my slate but spooked as my dad tried to get his barrel pointed over to it.
It's tough hunting turkey with a partner. You have to make a plan and stick with it. Hunting by yourself you call all the shots.
Check out the calls made by Away who also happens to be one of our sponsors http://www.awayhunting.com
Thanks Steve, I even sent for the catalog.
I use box and slate calls. Also use a crow call for a locator call.
The box call I use for long range calling and the slate for close up.
Had a push/pull call I liked but my boys took it apart trying to make one of their own.
I use several box calls, my favorite is one by L. Graves.
I use a double push button call as well.
I can tune each side different and sound like a couple of hens purring and cluckin at the same time.Sometime I hold my call under a piece of camo cloth to muffle the sound, seems to work close in.
For some reason I havent had to use one.. Gotten one the last 2 years but never called once. Must just be a really good area. I know 2 places I go if I dont see a turkey then I hear them.. They are always neat to watch though. Ill be watching this post more because I may not always be so lucky lol
