I use all of the ones that you guys listed, plus a Piliated Woodpecker. 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.

I heard some guy say that a trumpet style yelper will gobble a tom in the dead of night. So I hollowed out a dowl and hit the lake deep in the turkey-infested private woods to try it out the next morn. About a week ago I got 3 different gobbles while calling from my boat! It works well, but I still like the owl because it is also fun to mess with the real owls heads during the off season ;D

Watch calling to turkeys this close to the season TF.  A lot of states have laws that say that you can't mimic any sounds made by a wild turkey from "X" up to the start of the season.  Our season starts April 12, but from March 1st up to then, we can use locator calls, but nothing where we sound like a turkey.

Quote
A person hunting wild turkeys shall not
call or attempt to call wild turkeys by
mimicking the sounds made by a wild
turkey from March 1 until the opening
day of spring turkey season in any
area open to turkey hunting if turkeys
are reasonably expected to occur. Locator
calls such as crow or owl calls are
permitted.

I don't know if they have that in FL, but you may want to check to keep from getting busted. O0

I thought I was up to date on most laws and regulations, but I have never heard of such a thing. I'll search it out to see if it's so. Thanks for the head up. BC -keeping me outa the pokey! ;D

Its a good law but theres not enough wardens around to inforce it here! We got guys that drive around before season and during calling from the road! Pisses you off when you cant do anything bout it!!!
