Natural sounds such as crow caws or owl hoots are traditional options. Goose honks, hawk screams, coyote howls, woodpecker cries and others work too. Industrial noises and even thunder can cause a gobbler to pop off.
Turkey calls can locate gobblers, and pull them to your calling position. Air-activated and friction calls provide options for clucking and yelping. Mouth diaphragms while more portable provide challenges to some. Pot and peg, and box calls, are hand operated.
While you only need one call to kill a turkey, we hunters usually take far more in our vest. Use them. They’re called turkey calls for a reason.
Seat cushion: Beyond calls, you’ll need a good seat cushion for setups. Some come attached to your vest. Some can be carried on your shoulder or in the vest’s game pouch. Often I pack several.
Outside of your necessary firearm and shotgun loads, or archery tackle and appropriate arrows, the rest of the vest list goes like this:
Cell phone (turned off)
Compass or GPS unit
Pen for filling tags, with twist ties
Extra facemask and gloves
Sandpaper and scrubbing pads (for dressing friction calls)
You may think of some others too that I haven’t listed here, including your lucky turkey spurs or rabbit’s foot; whatever you carry in that department. While some of these aforementioned hunting tools are optional, others are not.
These may include some Yamaha accessories to make your ride more comfortable.
