Preston Pittman Calls work pretty well for us here in Pa.

Pick yourself up a box call.  They're good calls for beginners and most sound real good.  Also, get a few locator calls; crow call, owl call, pileated woodpecker call, coyote call, peacock call.  All of these work well to pull a shock gobble out of that big Tom, as long as that animal is home to the area your hunting.

Push button calls work well and are extremely easy to operate.  If you are just beginning you should get one and a box call as well.  I have an owl hooter and a coyote howler for locator calls.
Don't feel bad.....  We can't all be #1.

I am a Primos fan but I do not like how their mouth calls fit. I always use my power crystal or alumislate when calling to a bird. I really only use a mouth call when running and gunning trying to cut and shock gobble one, and then again when I cut to make him stretch his neck for his introduction into my "fan" club.  You can't go wrong with a push botton for simplicity, and you can get the one that attatched to your forend for when ole tom is in close.

Yep, what they said. O0

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.

Go slate amigo and you'll be able to learn quickly and easily the most important calls. Yelps, Purrs and Clucks.

My favorite is one that's from a now defunct company in Alabama. Pen Woods and Primos makes good ones though.

Try them out at your local store and buy yourself a video with some calling on it and go from there.

Calling a turkey is like calling a duck. Less is more!
To you gutless cowards and scumbags, who are trying to lie and rewrite history. To those out to commit genocide on the Southern people with your destruction of Confederate monuments and your attacks on Southern heritage and pride. Be happy for now. Because someday when that civil war you wanted starts. I will find you. And I will kill you.
