Calling All Turkeys
As a Guide and Call Maker I always get asked "why so many calls." I always tell hunters you don't see Tiger Woods using one club. Most people just think call makers just want to make another sale. Well we do, but some Turkeys are tired of hearing the same old thing over and over.
I can remember taking my son hunting and he was using a call I made that I did not like. He was playing with it and called in 15 hens in about two hours. It was a non stop morning. An hour later he called in 3 more hens and sure enough here came the toms. I know that call he used for the hens brought in those toms. By keeping the hens in the area the toms came in also.
So next time you go Turkey hunting don't give up after using one or two calls. Reach down deep in your bag and keep trying something else, if you run out of calls, go buy more.
Every year we travel over a 5 state area hunting Turkeys for our hunting video. As we travel around we have found out that the calls that work good in some areas don't always produce well in others. Don't get stuck on using one call for the rest of your life unless you're batting a thousand.
My son and I took two birds that morning, a super jake and bearded hen.
