    The focus is to keep shot sizes smaller for Hunter safety.
  5. Federal heavyweight tss

    4 shot or finer...
  6. Federal heavyweight tss

    Anyone trying this new load from Federal? Super heavy, with #9 shot hitting like #5 lead. The patterns as you might imagine, are unbelievable.

  13. My Quaker Boy Grand Old Master box call is my favorite call by a mile. But I find that even though it's easy to make turkey sounds with but beginners struggle with volume control. They sure sound sweet when you figure them out though. Down side is they generally need to be dry to work. So tougher to pull off in the rain unless you're in a blind.
  14. Easiest to learn for most callers. 1. Push/ peg box 2. Slate 3. Boxcall 4. Diaphragm 5. Wishbone Personally I'd start with a slate,(not glass) to start with and pick up a couple extra strikers to give it a variety of sounds. Boxcall it a great call for windy days or long distance caller. Can be versatile with practice. The push or peg calls are easy peasy. But often are very high pitched. But they do work.

    @minky. We've shot way more birds early afternoon until sundown than the morning hunts. This is especially true for the "C" and later seasons. If fact I shot an "A" season bird with 10 minutes left in my season before. Hunt as much as you can as it can happen at any moment. Good luck!
