First of all, welcome to the wonderful world of turkey hunting! It's a great sport, always challenging but one with many great folks who will try to be helpful to you.
I started http://www.allaboutshooting.com
to help folks with turkey hunting/shooting questions and to help them sort through all the information that's out there. There are many articles there about shooting, hunting and practical help. I also offer the "Shooting System", a free, no obligation service to help folks get the most from their gun, choke, shotshell combination.
I'd also recommend that you visit your local DVD/Video rental store and see if they have DVD's on turkey hunting. Some do and some don't but it's always worth a look. If they do, you can rent one or several and see techniques used by different hunters.
If you are able to get "Outdoor Channel" or "Versus" there are several turkey hunting shows, including "Turkey Call", "Turkey Country" and "Get in the Game" that will be of help to you.
I really recommend "Turkey & Turkey Hunting" magazine. Every issue is full of great articles and profiles of turkey hunting professionals, past and present. The "2008 Turkey Hunter's Equipment Guide" is also a great publication that will tell you a lot about all the subjects you mentioned and more. This site also has a wealth of information contained in the forums and in the articles. I'd encourage you to explore it fully and read all that you can, as often as you can.
Lastly, you may want to find your local chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation, contact the Regional Director in your area and become acquainted with the members. Most turkey hunters like to talk about their sport and will help you with calling, locating, etc. They may not tell you where their "honey hole" is however.
I know you'll enjoy this sport and its' good to have you here.
