I loved the old billy yargus with the blue tape, but since then they have totally jumped the shark. The colored latex calls are worthless for me and the way I call. They are far too loud, and I am sure they work great for others, but for me there are much more effective calls on the market.

I used to be an absolute Woodhaven disciple, way back when they packaged their calls in zip locks and Mike made them alone in his house I was a huge fan.

The first Aluminum friction I owned was one Mike made as a prototype and gave me about 20 years or so ago. Was/is a great call, but has since been retired.

I wish they had stuck with using normal latex in their calls, but anymore their calls just do not fit my style of calling or hunting.

I was a full on Woodhaven guy, however with the price increase they have starting with on all their calls and how they have moved away from the Custom approach and more into the mass production line i have slowly faded away from using them.

I still like the Red Wasp but looking at other options to replace it.

I like the Scott Ellis signature call. It's a little thicker tape than the others but has a good sound.

HA i did the same with HS Strut calls till i found the cuts i like.

I Personally have tried to get more into the custom made ones then massed produced calls when possible. nothing wrong with mass ones like HS or Primos as they have killed thousands of birds.

I am gonna go with David Holloran calls this year, dude makes a NASTY glass call and his mouth calls are pretty sweet.

I still have 2-3 Red Wasps so i will use them until I lose them or the rot.

I prefer my tube call but I have a red wasp and it sounds good, real raspy though, just depends on preference I guess.

I used them until I started making my own, IMO they are way over priced, there are several on the market that are as good without the premium price.

They sound good but I think my h.s strut calls sound just as nice with a lower price tag. Dont get me wrong there are some great callmakers out there that make better sounding calls than the mass produced calls. I always have used h.s strut to call my birds in and I dont wanna change anything.

Yes the Scott Ellis is brown with yellow its a bigger split v with wings trimmed. Took me a lil while to get used to the thicker tape.

On a side note yekrut on here makes a sweet sounding mouth call. Sounds as good if not better than the woodhaven. But easier to run.

I can owl hoot really well with my voice, but I never do it other than just to entertain folks at camp. In other words, I don't locate birds with an owl hoot period.

I cannot gobble with my natural voice, but with a 2 reed diaphram with no cuts in the latex I can gobble pretty darn good.

I can however use the Palmer Owl call as a duck call lol

Favorite mouth call: Tom Teaser "But Naked Hen" (crazy how much better I can run this one that any of the other 100s I've tried)

Wingbone: Yes, and like them a lot

Owl hoot: Yes. I quit carrying an owl call 2 years ago when I realized that -- after only 10 years of doing it in the car and when I was home alone, and while squirrel hunting, etc -- that I can owl hoot louder with my voice with a more clear notes than with any call I've tried. Turkeys like it too.

Gobble: Not with just my voice, but with a diaphragm, yes.

When Jim Pollard was with Woodhaven his batwing call was one of the best I have ever used....after he left that call sucked for whatever reason.. Some of the best calls I have ever used are Final Roost made here in KY.. David Holleran makes awesome calls...Most of my calls come from an old man down the road absolutely the very best glass call I have ever used... Been using same one for around 20 yrs.

Not no but he11 no. With populations as high as they are now, baiting turkeys for any reason is for people who don't know how to hunt and are too lazy to learn.

Y'all are pretty low down if someone talks about corn and y'all think there a unethical hunter and saying all this [censored] like what it has to do about the post and this post went to [censored] once someone mentions baiting everyone goes crazy
So not in one time in your life you haven't put anything out to get pics or just to feed? Yeah right..

IMO if you bait birds into an area and bait for a few weeks the birds will demolish all the food in that area in a short period of time !! Once you quit feeding the birds are forced to move to a new area for food !! I think feeding is a completely legal option it just is not for me !! If birds are in an area they will be close by come the opener if left undisturbed !!

Killmode, just be careful feeding them in such a way.... "rotten" corn can infect a flock of turkeys and kill them all.... If you're going to feed them, do it in such a way that the corn is highly unlikely to get wet... when it gets moldy, that's when things can start going down hill.

If you need birds/animals chummed into a place where you dictate to make it easier for you to kill one than you are lazy. This isn't a difficult concept.

If you need bait to to ensure a dead bird/animal than you probably don't know the prey you seek or are too lazy to learn how to effectively kill said prey.

What use are turkey pictures? "Oh Look a turkey", is about all it's good for.

I understand it for deer scouting and censusing the herd with regards to deer. But the whole chum up the turkeys stuff a few weeks before the season is garbage.

Sorry to be so blunt, but obviously you struck a nerve \:\)

I had never even thought of feeding turkeys pre season before reading this thread. I never considered it difficult to find a few spots where the birds roost and then hunt those spots... The hard part is getting the spot to yourself on public land and actually getting the bird in range.

I have really liked my Tom Teaser mouth calls. I bought 3 at Nwtf, and really liked them. Great sounds and not too much break in time.
