Amen to that. IMO too many hunters insist on sticking with mouth calls because of the convienence when it is not the best choice for them. Diaphragm calls are easy to use and difficult to master.
A good box or slate call will produce much more accurate turkey talk that the turkeys will respond to, and you'll kill more tukeys. Just use the mouth call for subtle clucks to get the gobbler to raise his head when the time is right.
I use a diaphram because of the versatility in the sounds you can produce. I personally think it near impossible to make proper clucks on a friction call. ....and it's hard not to make something closer to an alarm putt when trying to cluck on a slate. But by pursing my lips as I huff that same single note on a diaphram, it comes out with that distinctive < "poink" > sound you just can't create on a friction call. And it's real easy to roll that proper cluck right into a soft and subtle purr.
I may be wrong, but I think kee-keeing is impossible on a friction call as well.
I would agree that beginners would be well advised to master what they can for the here and now. You don't have to have a diaphram to talk turkey. ....But don't give up on trying to learn, it's value cannot be understated. ......And sooner or later, you'll find the key to making squeaky, squealing noises. Then it'll be on and soon thereafter you'll be speaking the language in a whole new dimension.
i think you mean in the right mouth[:D]...as for REAL turkey sounds ....there on the home page ....ORIGINAL: icdedturkes
In the proper hands a mouthcall can be one of if not the deadliest calls one can utilize. Buy the big name instructional videos or download off of youtube, once you are making basic sounds throw them videos in the trash and only listen to real turkey sounds.
If you do not want to take the time to properly become proficient with a mouth call, at least learn to make the subtle stuff that may or may not break a hunt in the final moments.
