So you want to get into turkey hunting! Just think of about this,"Addiction",because that is what is going to happen too you,buying calls,just like duck or goose hunting,you can buy hundreds until you find the ones you like,not what we like,cause we will have different likes than you,chokes,I use a XXXFull by Comp-n-choke,and it is in my mossgerg 835 ulti mag,Slate and pot calls,I have ten or twelve,only use two,box calls where do you begin,with a box call,they are the easiest to learn with,so now find one that fits your budget,vests,we all have or own preference,I have the limbhanger,and have three others from past years,I like how this one is set up,because my favorite calls are readily accessable in this style vest,sitting,standing or walking!
What I am saying is all the options out there these days it is all what you want too spend,and you need to find what you are able to get ahold of locally,and learn how to make all the sounds a turkey makes!Buy a few instructional videos,and cd's that you can listen too in the car,cause if you are married practicing in the house is going to drive your wife crazy!If you live alone go hard with the practicing,and like everyone else on here is saying,scouting is really important and knowing where your birds are roosting at night,very important! As spring gets closer you want to back away from the scouting,you don't want to disturb the birds,cause you will possibly push the birds out of that area! It is like anything you are going to hunt,gotta do the home work,you want to be inbetween the roosts and where the tom wants to be strutting and gobbling in the morning!So when you do make those sweet little calls he starts coming faster,and then when he sees your decoy he really commits! Good Luck with the Addiction!!!
