Turkey Hunting Whether it's spring or fall doesn't matter to this bunch. Great tips on calling, bustin flocks, using blinds and more.

For the Osceolas, I've found that an aluminum slate call has been the best. I have one called a "thunder dome", that I really think sounds horrible, but the gobblers really like it. I used a crystal slate for eastern and the merriams last year, it seemed to work the best. I usually will only use a box call to locate and mouth call when they are close, but not close enough...

I use several slate calls. My favorite of those is the Black Widow. Also this may not be relevent but one of the most fun calls you can use is an owl call to locate turkeys in the morning. They are super easy to use if you get the right one and fairly cheap.
