Hey remisgunner; It's great to be a turkeyhunter again I'll bet! I agree with the previous replys to your calling ?s. Some form of a slate call whether it's glass, slate, frictionite whatever works great and is easy to master. I have had a little trouble with aluminum calls and graphite strikers though! They just sqeak too much for me, and don't consistantly sound turkeyish enough for my liking. Maybe it's only me? But I'm going out on a limb and suggest using a pushbutton call. They are very easy to use and master all turkey sounds! Sometimes when other calls fail to get a response the push button trips their trigger.Other than a mouth call it is the easist to use at the last second before putting the hammer down on them. (less movement when they are close to your position) The hardest part about using a pushbutton call is finding the right one!! Some sound like crap, some sound springy, some are to quiet. Look for one that sounds the best to you!!! Good luck and good hunting joe
