[font=arial]I plain yelp, then I do an excited yelp...sometimes lost yelping and then you always have the classic tree yelp.
[font=arial] 
[font=arial]But if I want to attract both toms and hens I use what is called "cutting" which is just a series of very fast erratic clucking with a distinct sharp note that "pops" .....I believe this is the closest call a hen turkey has to a mating call, although the gobble is the only true mating call of the wild turkey

I guess I would say yelp, because without it I would probably not get the birds attention from a long distance.  But, if I could say the one call that I rely on the most to "seal the deal", it would be the purr with my mouth call".  It has got a bird to commit for me more than any other call up my sleeve!

TC,
All this time you thought you was cluckin and you was putt'n...easy to tell, if they run from ya....you putted, if they come to ya....you clucked [:D]
 
ORIGINAL: TurkeyComander

Yelp...yelp....yelp

All the old masters said the cluck is dangerous call if not produced accuratly it can easily be taken wrong by the turkey....so next time you cluck at one and he doesn't come ask yourself...was my cluck the reason he didn't show ?

In my oppinion the purr "by itself" is a useless call.
