Who is getting excited to get out and do some turkey hunting this upcoming season. I just ordered a Primos Wet Box to try out this season.

I just scored a sweet Aluminator call box at the flea market today! It was totally free, included the carbon fiber and hickory strikers!

Turkey planting has made it not that hard to get a big tom around here. Never used to see them that much but now road kill turkey is not uncommon ....they are everywhere and not that afraid of people

I have a house in Deposit, NY and the turkeys there are like pigeons in NYC.

What loads are people using? I personally will be shooting some #6 Tungsten this season.

I'm still debating that. Federal makes a turkey load, but I think its a 3 1/2" magnum. I'll be doin some lookin around, but likely a #4.

Well, several turkey loads from Federal, and they do have a 2 3/4" FliteControl in #4 shot. I would be very comfortable and confident with a 30 yard shot, heck could probably take it out with the wad!

I'd use my Persuader to turkey hunt, and if I get on it, I may have it back from paint in time!

i'm thinking either a mouth call or friction...but most likely both.

I dont know enough about them to be able to answer that properly. For me right now, it would be preferencial as to which one I can manipulate effectively. My box is like a slate call, but its aluminum. The only problem I see with it is after prepping (scuffing) the surface, the aluminum is soft enough that the prepped area has to be redone occassionally. But its also entirely possible I'm doin it wrong.
