There are seriously some mass produced pot and box calls that talk turkey well compared to these calls.
When you saw those pro-staffers running those mass produced calls that you thought sounded so good (and I'm not doubting your opinion, either, I bet they did sound really good), did you walk up and ask them if you could buy the exact pot or box they were running instead of the ones in the bubble packs hanging on the pegs by the hundreds????
(That was a rhetorical question by the way, no need to answer, only making a point)
I do know one thing for sure, a reputable callmaker will sell you the call in his hands that he's using to attract attention to his booth.
"So much of this business of hunting turkeys, you stupid it up right at the last.
You do everything right for an hour and a half, and then you sit down here
and there's nothing you can do about it, you made a mistake."
