I love a slate but not just any slate. I have to hear them outside really to get the true sound of it.

I wish I was good at mouth call. My son is awesome at it and can make any sound with one a turkey makes.
I will be so glad when he learns to control his calling. I think he calls to much. But what do i know he sure has dirt rolled more than i ever thought of doing.

I usually use a mouth call.If a turkey wants to die thats all it takes.I like it for the ones that sneak in on you also.Don't like to put my gun down to use a call.

Mine was a H.S. Strut Raspy Old Hen mouth call. However, the one I used last year was those new green or yellow or whatever color they are. The reeds wanted to stick together a lot. I went to a Primos I got to try and liked it. I'll probably give the HS another try maybe I just got a bad call or something.

+1 for woodhaven mouth calls, they sound great.
I've tred evry thing wally world had but they all sounded like a squeak toy for a cat, finaly broke down and spent the money for the wood hven (dont let the price scare ya, ther worth it in my book) and aint looked back.
My fave is the classic v3 ( great for yelps and cuttin with not to much rasp) or the red wasp ( has a little keener sound for a killer cackle or kee kee)

I usually try and throw a good mix of slates and mouth. Until I get one really fired up on a sound. I got a crystal slate thats old faithful for me though.

Got a Woodhaven Crystal slate call that my wife got me at a yardsale for 5 bucks! Just got it last summer. After I basically tackled her with a huge hug, I opened it up and realized it had never even been sanded! That thing sounds amazing and I cant wait to use it this year. I got onto the Woodhaven train last year by buying one of their strikers and buying their mouth calls. They'll make you throw away the other ones \:D

Cane Creek slates are the finest, hands down.

Love both the slate and glass.

Killed several with both.

Mouth calls are my favorite, but they all sound the same.

Slates to get their attention, and mouths to bring them in.

WHHHAAAAAAATT?

My favorite mouth calls are woodhaven copperhead and the "Will Primos" call. I think it's called a WP1.

Slate call is hands down the woodhaven cherry classic slate over glass. I also made a slate call myself that will give it a run for the money. I still love the laminated striker with either of these calls.

Box call is a toss up from several. I really love this little call I have called a Rocky Top Game Calls laminated. It has mahogany and cedar with some poplar I believe. Anyway, I bought it last year and I love the high pitch yelps. You can get some volume out of this thing or do light yelps.

Ashby(Houston,MO, now out of business)"raspy old hen" box call. It's a stradivarious of calls. I think that I bought it on a bargain table years ago for 2 bucks. Every now and then, one will come up on ebay, but people are knowledgable and the bidding quickly gets too high for my blood. At any rate, like most box calls, I can call one in from the next county, or sweet talk him at 25 yards, and in either situation, it sounds like the real deal.

I use a woodhaven Billy Yargus (blue) mouth call most of the time when working birds or a Darrin Dawkins ALuminum friction call. Laminate strikers all the way for me as well.

Obviously,my example "at 25 yards" is not entirely accurate, because at that range he would have hopefully already been dead. LOL However, the point was that I have always been partial to sweet sounding boxes, that one in particular, and the hand movement factor with boxes and slates is a non-factor with me,as my hands are ALWAYS hidden, since I hunt from a blind.
