can't say i have a favorite turkey sound that i use on every bird or setup . now remember , i haven't killed near the number of birds that i have bumped or spooked or was impatient with. sometimes i'll tree yelp ,,,sometimes i'll wait till they are on the ground. but i rarely ever start with the same call two setups in a row.
t c , i've for the most part agreed with most of your posts and replies. but i can honestly say i've called in many birds with no more than a faint purr,,,and a few of them did ride in the truck.
the yelp is an attention getter for sure ,,but where i'm used to hunting , many times that's all you'll get is their attention . maybe the reason i don't use the yelp so much is because so many other hunters are wearing it out ,,,,where i hunt that is .
