As much as I love the sounds a pot or box call produces, more of my turkeys have fallen to a diaphram call. It allows hands-free calling and I can call loud or quiet if I need to. I can practice with it at work as I'm driving down the road as well.

My Knight-n-Hale Old Yeller Pot Call and a mouth call! Always use both at the same time. Guess I would have to spit it out or swaller it when "the man" showed up! Hahaha! But in seriously my old yeller hands down!

2.5 Cutter with thick reeds would be my choice.

One call?  Must be capable of ''ALL'' turkey vocalizations . Must be well made and durable .
 The last couple of years has found me only carrying 3 calls on any given hunt . This spring I may only carry two ,,,at a time .
 
 It's hard to beat a good mouthcall for ease of operation , full range of calls , and no movement required .

Definatly a good diaphragm mouth call! They can do it all with practice. Other than a good crystal pot, that's all I carry anyway. Remember to be the hen with any call, be confident with the call.

Thanks Mark! I really like this forum thing, should have been here sooner. I can talk about turkey hunting forever it seems, especially with fellow turkey hunters!

Im going with a diaphragm also because of all the reasons already mentioned. Besides it would be terrible to lose your stricker like i have done so many times in the past and be stuck with just a slate.
