Default What catch's your attention???

Just to get some conversation going I was wondering what sells you individually on trying/possibly purchasing a new turkey call?With so many calls available to todays turkey hunter how do you go about your choosing?Sound,maybe name,maybe type,thought this topic might help those new to the sport.....

i can honestly say that i really dont pay much attention to the name that is on the call... i look for how well the call is made... ease of use... and if i can i try to hear that call before purchase.... b/p has all types of calls that can be tried(hand held) i just keep in mind that 100's of other consumers have tried these calls before me so it is all done with a grain of salt

I usually won't buy a call unless I can try it first. The obvious exception is mouth calls. You've just gotta use trial-and-error.

I've used so many strikers and slate calls, that I have a pretty good idea what it's going to sound like, without ever using it. I know, you probably think I'm nutty.

When something new comes along, I give it a whirl - ex. Sla-tek, Aluminum, Acrylics, etc. If it comes in flashy "gimmicky" looking packaging, I usually leave that for somebody else to try. I trust certain brands (Quaker Boy, M.A.D., H.S. Strut) but I'm not necessarily brand-loyal.

I find myself unable to resist buying every aluminum call ever made.

The way a call sounds is what trips my trigger as well.

With out a doubt, sound.

Just last month I went to a hunting expo and was not intending to buy anything. I picked up a box call and liked the sound, so I bought it. It's louder than my other box call.

The sound / tone is what I look for. Good all around tone is important. I especially like the exotic wood pot calls. The ones that are purty and sound great to.
