What does a turkey sound like when it gobbles?
Males also emit a low-pitched “drumming” sound; produced by the movement of air in the air sack in the chest, similar to the booming of a prairie chicken. In addition they produce a sound known as the “spit” which is a sharp expulsion of air from this air sack. Hens “yelp” to let gobblers know their location.
How does a box call work?
A box call works and produces a turkey sound by friction. It’s the moving of the lid across one of the sides of the box that creates a vibration. It’s this vibration that resonates through the box, emitting tonal qualities that go from high to low, mimicking the yelp of a hen turkey.
When should you gobble at a turkey?
Just setup two or more decoys in an open area and wait. As a rule turkeys gobble best on clear, calm, high-pressure mornings in the spring. Stand on a ridge or bluff at dawn and you‘re apt to hear birds gobbling a mile or more away in all directions.
How often should you call to a turkey?
Call every few minutes, and act like a disinterested hen going about her daily routine. Moving also helps in such situations, because turkeys rarely sit and yelp in one place for long.
Which is better glass or slate turkey call?
It’s a matter of tone choice between a slate or glass surface, both surfaces will play the same loud or soft. A glass surface has a little more character in the voice than a slate surface does, and is much better if you hunt in a high humidity area or light rain.
Where do turkeys go when it’s windy?
Turkeys often move to fields in heavy wind because they can see danger more easily there and escape the noise of clattering branches and swishing bushes. Scout to see where they enter and exit, then set up an ambush just back in the woods at those locations.
Which side of a turkey mouth call goes up?
The tab is also used to identify which side of the call goes up or down. For most calls, the tab goes down when placing the call in your mouth.
