    IMG_0249.JPG mine is a 20 yr old crystal call by mad calls. I bought a a woodahven striker about 8 yrs ago for it. Then I made a custom striker from a vintage aluminum arrow I had with a elk horn crown. Both sound awesome. On the finishing touches, I have used a primos piggyback double for years.

    Another good question I have is how many of u use a gobble call? I have 20+ years of turkey hunting and called in 2 with nothing but a gobble call. Anybody else had any success with it?

    One hunt I scared 2 tons off the roost walking in. They flew separate directions. After daylight one started gobbling in his own. So I went towards him using a gobble call with a lynch box call. He came in like a gobbler coming in to a gen. Gobbling at ever gobble I made. Not a typical hunt but a memorable one that sticks out in my mind.

    I kill at least 60% of my birds with gobbling. I gobble on a diaphragm. It's deadly in the first half of season. Woodhaven red wasp is my go to call.

    I will try and locate them if they are quiet later in the morning , by gobbling with a mouth call and have had good success locating but never have gobbled one in , my go to call is a custom crystal , and a triple and double reed mouth call I like to use both in sequence to sound like two hens

    I've tried gobbling with a mouth call. What music I make from one is too high pitched fir me

    Practice. Do it just like you're feed calling with a duck call. Tucka Tucka Tucka.

    It just sounds to high pitched. I've tried it multiple times.

    Use a raspier call. A 3-5 reed call with bat wing cut...

    Get a tube call. Not only do they make great sounding hen calls, they are easy to gobble on, and sound very good.

    For the last 20 years my “go to” calls have been various diaphragms.. ranging from Primos, HS Strutt, K&H and a few Cane Creek.

    But ... I carry one old slate call I bought in the very early 80’s ... a Lynch’s Jet. I called up & killed my first tom with this call. As it’s a soft sounding slate.. makes some real pretty yelps, clucks and purrs. Which I’ve lost count on how many Toms this call has accounted for and has worked really well when nothing else seems to work. I wouldn’t part with it for anything... and it’s always in my vest.

    Which back then we had turkeys in LBL but that was it.... and finding someone who turkey hunted was rare. So... you just taught yourself through trial an error. As such... I got my hands on an old Ben Rogers Lee cassette tape and literally would spend hours trying to mimic his sounds on this call.

    My go to would be a mouth call. Which is a cane creek triple with a v cut. I carry an aluminum pot call, I forget whose it is, also have a lynch fool proof box that was one of my first turkey calls I bought back in the early eighties. But my go to is the mouth call.

    I have calls that are for different conditions. But closing the deal would be between 2 mouth calls a 2.5 reed, notched & split, light stretch and the other one same make up but stretched .200 tighter.
    JD ,I had the same cassette Ben Rogers Lee always hated he missed the turkey hunting explosion.
