Some of those competition folks sound better than real live turkeys.

I still prefer to let the real thing judge my calling abilities even though I have won a division in one state calling contest. Those turkeys that wear socks are a lot more critical than the wild birds most of the time.

Preston Pittman did a tape in the 90's titled all judges that pretty much summed up the difference in calling for hunting and calling for contests.

Yep. I've heard some hens that would definitely not win a yelping contest.

I have found simple and subtle seems to work best in real life for turkey hunting.
