Turkey hunters are only as good as the calls they use to produce those sounds that drive tom turkeys crazy. Here are some super-sweet models to consider.

Sweet Suzie Snood
The Sweet Suzie Snood from Hunters Specialties is a compact pot call with a frosted glass-over-glass surface. It produces high-pitched hen calls that drive gobblers wild, with ample volume to reach out to long distances or cut through windy conditions. A rougher pad is included with the pot and striker.
Zink Calls Z-PAK
Each Zink mouth call is hand stretched and built by champion turkey caller and hunter Josh Grossenbacher. The Z-PAK Combo includes three exceptional Z-Series mouth calls — Z-Yelper, Z-Cutter and Z-Combo. These three calls produce a range of pitches and sounds from clear to raspy and everything between. This combo pack arms you with everything needed to make irresistible calls, including a Turkey Time University instructional DVD.
Primos Lil’ Hook Up
The Lil’ Hook Up is the latest box call in Primos’ Hook Up line. An ultra-strong magnet holds the paddle at the precise angle to automatically apply the correct amount of pressure for optimal box-call sounds, including crisp cutts, smooth purrs and variable-range yelps. The call is compact and perfect for carrying in a turkey vest, and the detachable paddle allows the call to be carried quietly.
Flextone Magnum Thunder Gobble
Tick off gobblers with the Magnum Thunder Gobble from Flextone. This call is perfect for locating and then challenging dominant gobblers, especially those courting hens. It’s easy to use and can be mastered in just minutes. The Magnum Thunder Gobble produces loud, mature-sounding gobbles that carry great distances. The call features beautiful turkey-feather detail for an unmatched appearance. It includes a neck lanyard.
