Longing for a bowhunting-close encounter with a springtime noisemaker? Then leave nothing to chance.

While there is nothing wrong with posting up in a known-turkey-haunt location and simply waiting, part of the fun of bowhunting longbeards is calling to them.

Make your turkey quest more exciting and more memorable than ever this season by taking the time to master several different types of calls (slate, diaphragm and box). The result of your efforts may just lead to you walking out of the woods with a vibrant fan and an ebony body bobbing over your shoulder.
