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

Default What is your go-to call?

What is the one call that you own that if you left home without it you would be willing to turn back for?

For me it has surprisingly become a Primos True Triple mouth call. I could run my trusty pot calls but without my mouth call I feel lost. I can go with nothing but a mouth call.

It's only be the last 6 years or so that I've gotten this way. For a long time I had to have an old Lohman ThunderDome. Before that it was a box call.

What about you?

Like you a mouth call usually finishes the game with me. I carry a custom box call and several custom pot calls that I start the game with, and when he starts coming closer I switch to my Knight & Hale half moon cutter, which enables me to have both hands on my gun and ready for when he shows up.

I have an older QB call, The Finisher. Is a small frame with a piece of round slate in it, no sound chamber. It's hard to get too loud and makes great small calls and tree yelps.

And like all great calls, they don't make it no more.

An HS Strut small box call along with a custom box call of about the same size is the main ones I would never leave home without. I don't have and have never used mouth calls and I've never felt that hindered without any in getting a bird in if he wants to come in. I can use them for loud, long distance calling to get a bird started and I have my gun up close to where I can get down on it to shoot such that I can use those calls to bring them in close.

I have a primos old hen box call, a slate/ crystal with striker and a diaphragm mouth call used in the last 80 yds. If I have time I set up decoys but have probably shot twice the birds without them by running and gunning and just calling.

I use a M.A.D wooden push pin box call. Can't find my diaphram calls.
