Guys, forgive me for this quickie. The photo your talking about is dated/posted 3-1. Just looked up the record. It was taken on 3-28-16. Like I said, not the bird in the pic. And I do take two serious months involving myself in turkey and didn't work during turkey season. Insane in that way,... Maybe. To me it's the greatest interactive challenge out there. But I love the game. Not trying to stir the pot. I apologise. Just had to point that out.
Got my nuts busted big time here for no reason. Now, more to pick at or serious inquiry on calls?
R3? Join the flock?

First off, you guys are no beginners so bear with me on my logic and being repetitive with what you already know.. The easiest to address is thunder chicken about the gobbler shakers. I carry two strut "twisters" and the old black quakerboy. The strut shakers have a deeper tone then the quakerboy that sounds closer to a younger bird. Now last year was a warmer spring and while scouting, I watched hens being breed on March 7th. 5 weeks before the season start. By the time the season started, the heavy breeding was virtually over. When that 9:30-10:00 mark rolls around in the morning, a lot of toms have lost the hens they were courting. A good number of toms are looking for company. By the end of "B" week last year, calling out with cuts or yelps wasn't getting responses in the mid morning. It was like they weren't interested. Used a gobbler call. Or with a second call in the other hand to call and step on the first gobbler sequence. Whether they were wanting company or viewed the call as a challenge, I don't know. But they would light up and come looking for you.

TH50 for my gobbling I go with a walnut Whitt box, I find this gives more of an older throaty gobble over a young one like you'd get with a Bullock box. Do you have a favorite friction call brand or surface? Mine would have to be rite now my red slate or my Apocalypse glass call. I find these 2 calls give me the range of volume, tone and depth perception weather your 3ft or 300yds. I match these 2 surfaces to a nice IPE and Hickory Stryker, with my black ebony in a my Glenda Green Stryker roll up just in case. How about you? Your definitely toting a lot of box calls afield? What combo is working for you? I'd like to invite you to one of our chapter meetings and maybe do a small presentation in call selection and how you go about packing your vest? We have a lot of youth in our fold and they would definitely benefit from it. Our next meeting is TBD, but I'll keep you posted. Were going to have a nice segment on locator calls, when and what to use.

Well I’m not convinced yet TH50 please show me a picture of this vest that holds 30 Calls.
Post up a quick picture for me I can’t imagine what a vest sold on the market today that can hold more than,1 box call, 2 friction calls maybe 4 if your using a different pocket in it, not to mention room for mouth diaphragms, a few strikers, thermosell.
The part where you claim Insanity I can believe!!
I can’t wait to see this vest.

Remember the saying if it walks like a duck, looks like a duck, quacks like a duck, it must be a duck.
