    I have a local maker's little box call, Tom Gaskins. Not loud, better for "homestretch" convincer calling, sweet tone.

    I tend to use diaphragm calls more than any other because they are hands free. I really liked a company called XT calls but they went out of business so I've been using hooks custom calls the past couple of years. Don't have a huge preference on a specific diaphragm but I do prefer some type of v-cut.

    I have 4 Yinglings. Copper over glass, copper over slate, aluminum, & a slate. All good calls from a super good guy. Really love his copper calls!

    This year my "go to" will also be the cheap lil' Deuce.

    I am amazed at the expense and expanse of turkey calls.

    I purchased several calls and practiced over several years, as I applied for and didn't get picked for our public land lotteries.

    Last year after finally getting onto a lease, I got my first turkey with a lil' Deuce.

    The toms were very quiet. I worked mine for 4-hours, and I only called 4 times, each only a single series of 7 yelps, and boom!

    The same with ducks. I've a nice RNT, but my go to is a cheap '70s D-2.

    Yep. "Cooler and better" are prevailing. Motion decoys, 70 yard shots, $100 calls. It's going the way of duck hunting quick...

    Luckily, turkey hunting takes a good amount of skill, and folks who can't do it will give up quicker, when they can't kill anything.

    An old Cody glass with a rosewood striker is always in my hand. I also always have a mouth call in my cheek. Last few years those have been Woodhaven, but which one just depends on which model feels right at the moment.

    Yingling coppers are really nice, but if I could only bring one to the woods; it's my Halloran Crystal Mistress.
