One call...

Postby 1Morgan » January 7th, 2011, 12:24 am

IF your laws changed and you could only legally carry one call while turkey hunting, what would you choose and why?

I would carry a mouth call. I can do most vocalizations with it and it works in the rain. I tend to shake a bit normally and when I have a bird gobbling, it almost becomes a seizure. Which makes working any call with my hands difficult. I need to keep the gun steady.

I would take my aluminum pot. Why? Because the law says one call, it didn't say I couldn't take as many strikers as I wanted [:)]  Each striker turns it into another call and I can still use it when wet.

One call? It would have to be my double reed mouth call. I'm not great on the purr but all other vocalizations will get me through.
Uh, this is just for fun, right? You haven't heard of anyone trying to do this dastardly deed?

A glass pot hands down, and a few strikers. [;)]

If I could take only one call to the woods I would have to say it would be my bronze glass over cherry call. I like the idea of having a mouth call in the rain but if my glass call was the only one I could carry, I would just head to the blind on rainy days where both the call and myself are protected from getting wet. I'm confident enough that I could use a mouth call successfully, but I haven't mastered the purr yet and that's one of my go to calls when I have made contact with a gobbler, otherwise that might be the call I used.

This is a very interesting question. Because I like to carry several different calls when hunting.
But if I had to choose only one call it would be my purpleheart/mahogany box call. As for the
rain, no problem just place it inside a plastic bag.

Hey, Bill, ....nice to see you over here, my friend. 
 
My choice would be a triple-reed, split V mouth call....one that sounds just the way I want it to for all calls....

If you could call with your natural voice, AND had a call with you...would "they" arrest you? [8|]


I'd take whatever type pot call I felt like taking that day with a bunch of strikers. Probably cheat too...I'd have a mouth call tucked in my cheek and if the warden surprised me...I could always swallow it. [:'(]

For me, it would be my glass slate and rosewood striker. that one call has accounted for most of my turkeys.
