    I used a little push caller like the Easy Yelper above called a Sassy Hen to get the first turkey I ever killed in range. I don’t really have a go to. I mix in several calls. Primos Wet Box is a great sounding and easy to use box call for the money. Bought mine for $8 after season few years ago.

    I bought a flextone thunder shaker gobble call the other day. I've used several other gobble calls including double sided box calls but this thing is one of the most realistic gobble calls I've ever used. My wife got on to me gobbling inside the house so I went out on the porch. I let out a good sounding gobble And a tom answered it on the other side of the creek. I was like good enough to proof to put in my turkey vest. Rt situations they are an underestimated call imo. Just got to be careful when using them.

    I use Sweet Seduction Game calls. Very small basement company but boy could Chris crank out some nice sounding calls. He sold his business this year to another fella but this guy should continue the quality. They have a Facebook page.
     
  4. A cheap, simple HS Strut Lil Deuce 2 slate paired with a rosewood striker is my foolproof call but I’ve honestly closed more birds scratching leaves than anything. Maybe my hand and some dry leaves?;)

    I usually carry a slate and glass with several strikers just to mix it up. One of my strikers is a little rosewood and it does make a sweet sound.

  7. You obviously have never dropped it and had it roll away. Only will happen once. Prefolded desired amount in a ziplock baggie only way to go.

    Couple pot calls a buddy made, slate, aluminum, glass.. Just depends on what flavor they like or wind. Mostly use the box call I made with poplar/walnut. Zink mouth calls or madd.
    Toooo skeered to fan one here... I'm sure the rush would be awesome tho!

    One doesn't have to be a "contest" caller to kill a turkey. The setup is most important me thinks. I use a cheap diaphragm call or a Lynch foolproof box call. Almost any of the commercial calls will work. Avoid calling too much or too loud. Cadence is important. Not too slow and not too fast. A tom without hens is, well, a major plus.

    Others on here may disagree, but that's what worked for me over the years.

    I agree ,contest calling sounds good,a lot of effort put into ,but a hen sure don’t sound as pretty as a contest caller.Do your scouting and setup right you’ll do good.Ive read stories of turkeys being called ,by pulling on a piece of bob wire ,on an old fence post.

    H S Strut Grand National double slate over glass that I bought in the late 80's. Many have been the birds that have been fooled with this call. A great call to use when they're still on the roost and equally effective as a closer. Would not leave home without it.
