I love my box calls. Very versatile call. But often just use a mouth call as it's handy and doesn't involve movement.

I love all calls but here is my go to. Old picture I have 5 or 6 more notches to add.

I'm thinking of getting a new lil heartbreaker but she keeps bringing them even with the sound changing a bit. All nothces are for birds killed from just this call when others failed.

Hoyt4 that is very impressive the number of turkeys you harvested. Mostly Minnesota birds or?

i've shot more toms using a diaphragm than any other call

really like my walnut/cherry real hen box and also have crystal, glass and slate pots in my vest along with a couple tubes

like others, many times i start with a pot or box and finish with a mouth call

lately, though, i have a couple goods spots that are a long walk in and when i get there i usually end up covering a lot of ground so, if its not going to be very windy, i have been grabbing just my mouth call pouch and leaving the vest in the truck

both toms i got this year were diaphragm only, the first a woodhaven black venom and the second a WH copperhead

I'm hoping to find one this evening. Only have the evening to hunt.

Laker that is a mixture of birds from missouri ,Sd,WI,MN,NE not all harvetsed by me but was the one who called them in using this call. I also love mouth calls just soemtimes birds like a certain tone better.

I would never pick just one. Every single time I do a set I have minimum 2 diaphragms in my mouth, one raspy one sweet, my 1980 Quaker Boy Grand Old Master box that has 87 hash marks on the back and a Roberts Bros. Glass over Slate. And I'll add a Lynch box or Dustin Jones Glass call or a wingbone if need be or even my Alabama Cackler slate!

Point is on any given day you totally short yourself if you stick with ONE call. You just don't know what tone is going to strike and then fire up a given gobbler.

Acquire as many different calls as you can afford.

Yes, my vest is heavy. I go in heavy and hopefully come out heavier.

I usually have 3 mouth, one box, one slate, a glass, a push button, a tube, a gobble call, and I think that's it. I guess I like to go heavy also. BUT - if I could only use one call it would be my box hands down.

    • My slicer works well yet at 130 and it's not almost fully cooked.
    • Thanks for some of the tips. I will try it in the next couple of weeks when i have time. I have read to smoke till about 150 internal temp does it make a diffrence if it goes to 130 or 150?
    • that makes 2 of us. Not sure what the deal is but going back and looking at old posts its doing the same to those pics as well. and there were no issues with those prior.   maybe has to do with the site being down over the weekend and some changes were made? @Rick
    • Looks good to me rundrave.  Is it just me or my phone, but the pics are on roids and I need glasses to read what's typed all of a sudden...
    • I've done both wet and dry brines with much better results with the dry. As grainbelt stated you can mix up whatever sweetness you like. Here's a simple one but pretty good. Its ALL per pound of meat.   1- Tbsp of tenderquick  1.5 Tbsp brown sugar  1/4 tsp black pepper  1 tsp garlic powder ( optional) Mix all the spices together and coat the belly , depending on the size you might have to cut it in half,  this is when you do that and stuff em in two 2 gallon ziplocs.   You can add some maple syrup to the bags as well,flip them  every day for 6 or 7 days then rinse them off real well,  put them on a wire rack and place back in the fridge uncovered. Next day smoke , and like grainbelt said your target internal temp is around 130, let them cool off and wrap up in plastic wrap for the next day of slicing. It might sound a lot of steps but its not that bad, with great results!! Good luck.    
    • If anyone here is in the market for an electric smoker, give me an IM. I will soon be listing my MES 40 that has only been used 1 time. It is barely even seasoned!
    • Not yet, but I have been thinking of trying one....
    • I figure any fish that doesn't get into my boat was a wall-hanger for sure. 😀
    • I've never bought a car/truck over $15K, so yeah.  It would take a powerball jackpot before I was in the market for a dealer showroom boat.
