I carry a variety so as to see which one "he" responds to the best....

I have a few but may have some new ones this year.

1. WH red wasp (although may move it down to 3 or 4 this year)
2. David Holloran Crystal Mistriss
3. Simmons Custom Call Tube call.

However I have a few from Final Step Calls that may take over #1 this year.

Also suprisingly i have an old Knight and Hale Ol Yeller i just cant seem to get rid of lol. its the only "production" call i have anymore but it just seems to work year after year.

I carry a couple others, but have never bought into the theory that birds really care. He is either receptive or he is not.

Use a call you are comfortable with, use it in a way which makes you confident, and most importantly be smart and spend more time perfecting your setups, knowledge of the terrain, and how to move on birds.

Way too many folks worry about what call they carry, or how good/bad they call, rather than the importantance of everything else in regards to turkey hunting.

I disagree ....woodsmanship is 40% of the battle...knowledge of turkeys behaviors and vocalizations they are making 30%(basically knowing how to take their temperature and when they aren't ready)....25% having good calls you can rely on to sound the same each time you go to use them!!! Most store bought mouth calls will change tone and pitch after they have been used a while...and the last 5% is being where turkeys are or want to be !! More importantly though none matters a hill of beans if you can't sit still while that bird is approaching :-) !!

HS Strut Cuttn 2.5 is my go to call. Bought a new slate last year but the name escapes me. Never cared for box calls too much.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

All mouth calls will stretch and change tones over time... it is the nature of latex... doesn't matter where you buy it.

As for a call, I won't leave home without a slate and a couple of mouth calls.
