Here’s another great video and text feature from our friends at Best Turkey Decoy.
Basic fall turkey calls are the only ones you need to score in October. They vary slightly from hens with poults to tom and jake groups, and there is no need to get fancy on them. Fall gobbler turkey calls are easy to learn, but they’re different from the sounds of spring.
Fall Calls of a Gobbler
Just like humans, the male turkey has a deeper and raspier voice. As you listen to a bird’s fall calls, you can pick up on the tone and rasp variances from young of the year, adult hens, and jakes and toms. The same should be true of your calls. Identify which calls easily replicate the style of birds you wish to imitate, and mentally catalog them so you pick the proper calls when afield.
