    I'm going to jump in here on this one with you guys.[:D] I am more of an old school guy I guess, but I do like to call a lot too.
     If I am really after the bird and have good cover. I will move to stay in front, and out of site of the bird, and call very little. These birds have keen eyesight and calling draws attention to my position. Make a wrong move and old Tom sees it, learns my calling voice, and he has my number. Then he is really hard to get.
    Stay out of site, move when necessary and old tom usually goes home with me for dinner.
 
    I am not a champion Turkey caller, but there is nothing like the excitement of having a Tom or group of them come running in after the call. I usually only use my calls as a locator or to get them to close that last 100 yds if, and only if, they are not moving my way.
 
     [8|]My opinion.., if you want to eat Turkey meat, call less, hide better, move only when necessary. If you want more dramatic action and are good at it, call more.

Heck, don't none of that apply to me, I'm just opinionated.

I got a question. Is the every time you ever "call" a bird actually done with a caller? I saw a guy bring two hens and a LB over a little ridge by scratching the ground. I also have been told that there is a certain rhythm to the scratchings. Yes I knew the answer but I thought it cool to know. Some of you "ole timers" may have different takes on that.

I consider a well timed leaf scratching as a call.  I also consider the fluffing of a wing as a call.  Both can be deadly when used properly.  Both can also cause you to be seen if made indiscriminately.

I agree, leaf scratching and wing fluffing are great calls when used properly.
 
150 I always used the 4 scratch rhythm. The first one which is a little loud, short pause then another a little softer, then another a little softer, a short pause and then a little soft flick. Along with that I am also doing very soft contented purring with a very soft cluck thrown in now and then.
 
I know of some that only use a 3 scratch method.

Most every turkey I've seen (in person or on video) and heard (that was close enough to hear the lesser 4th scratch) has used 4 scratches. The 4th one is made when the turkey steps back to peck the area just scratched.
