The ‘Calls’ that Bring the Gobbler

 

The ‘Calls’ that Bring the Gobbler

By ZZ Troutski

The hugely popular line of Game Sleds are synonymous with the company, Hunting’s a Drag, Inc.; however, these state-of-the-art ‘gurneys’ are not the only products this company sells. The innovative minds that created Game Sleds offered THE product that has become essential for the hunter to transport large game (400+) out of the woods on a gurney that weighs only six pounds. Not only was the first Game Sled extraordinary because it helped the hunter’s back and muscles by cutting down transportation time by hours, but it was also THE product made to help keep the habitat damage-free when hauling the animal out of the woods.

 

These same innovative minds also created a line of turkey calls for the avid gobbler hunter that are as state-of-the-art as the Game Sled. The masters at Hunting’s a Drag, Inc., not only provide the perfect calls, but they also take the time to explain the variety of calls that can be purchased. The hunter needs the right information in order to take that turkey from the woods to the dinner table!

 

There are a variety of turkey calls to sort through; from box to friction, wingbone to diaphragm, the turkey hunter should know facts ahead of time in order to select the best call for his/her needs.

 

For a little more information before you shop: Box calls make the sound of a gobbler by the  friction created when sliding the lid across the surface of the box. Convenient, these are the calls that experts have stated produce a higher volume than anyApril 2010 751 other.

 

When it comes to the most commonly used call,  the friction call takes the stage because the lifelike turkey sounds are created easily. The call surfaces can come in slate, aluminum, glass or a variety of other materials.

 

Push-pull turkey calls create the turkey sounds by pushing or pulling a button on the end of the call. Extremely simple.

 

The tube call offers variety; the hunter can create almost any sound in a turkey’s vocabulary, from yelps to purrs to the well-known gobbles.

 

Wingbone calls were aptly named because they were once made from a turkey’s wingbones. The sounds created are forceful, exuding a hollow sounding yelp.

 

Diaphragm calls are definitely the most difficult, seeing as that they are inserted into the hunter’s mouth and require a great deal of practice in order to learn how to use the device right.

 

Each and every call requires maintenance and the correct storage to keep them ‘gobbling’ for seasons to come. And when looking to Hunting’s a Drag, Inc., the turkey calls offered are of the highest-quality and last a good, long time.

 

The Bloodwood Slate Call from this company dominates the turkey woods with new frequency yelps that gobblers can not seem to ignore.

 

The Roost’em Composites (offered in slate, aluminum or glass) are extremely affordable, and have been reviewed by industry pros as being: “The best in the country” Powerful hen clucks and yelps, as well as some of the finest feeding content purrs available are what the hunter receives.
Roost’em Glass is the top pick when it comes to glass calls. With plenty of rasp, the very stable marking on the glass is all ready and set to go as you embark on your turkey hunting journey. No deep scratching on this call, just take it out annually to clean it before heading out into the woods (Finish Options: Black Walnut, Cherry, Oak)

 

Purpleheart/Black Walnut Box is the deadly box call that gets it done! From high to raspy, this is the call that’s the most realistic on the market.

 

Creating the most essential item for hunter’s when it comes to the Game Sled as a huge feat. Now, this ever-expanding company makes sure that the avid turkey hunter is also covered!
