Turkey calls are wide and varied, and it seems turkey hunters want to mimic a wide variety of sounds. However, there is one call every turkey hunter must master: the plain yelp of a hen. Spending energy thinking through how to call turkeys with a mouth call, or which is the best friction call on the market, isn’t nearly as important as know how to master the basic yelp with friction calls, mouth calls, or mechanical calls like a push-pull turkey call.
Turkey Calls Have Foundations.
When it comes to turkey calling basics, every turkey hunter must build on one key foundation: the plain yelp of a hen.
In this turkey calling video, Jason Cruise, host of Mossberg’s Rugged American Hunter series is going to walk you through turkey calling 101 in one specific area of the plain yelp, and he will use multiple turkey calls to show you how to lay the groundwork for realistic hen sounds.
