    Default turkey broadheads and calls

    I am new to turkey hunting and will be going on a few hunts this year both with gun and bow. I was wondering what broadheads everyone uses. I was also wondering what kind of calls are popular, friction, diaphragm? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

    I am also new to turkey hunting...that's why my arrows will be tipped with the same heads I use for deer hunting, Rage two blades. I figure, they fly like field points and the open up something fierce. My buddy will be doing the calling. Good luck!, I'm sure you'll get solid advice from other members.

    I've had good luck with Grim Reaper heads on turkey. As far as calls, I mainly use diaphrams 90% of the time, & slate calls 10% of the time. I use box calls on windy days, they cut through the wind better. But that's just me.

    I use all types of calls. I think they all have their place.

    I use Slick Tricks. This year I used Grizz Tricks with Awesome results!

    Thanks for the responses guys. I was unsure weather to use expandable heads or not. I think I will stick with fixed blade for turkey. I think I will destroy to much meat if I use a wide cut expandable.

    What call for what conditions?
    Thanks again,

    the slate call is the easiest to use to me for making a variety of calls if your a beginner....i am pretty much a beginner myself so this is from my personal experiences.

    Any good broadhead should do the trick so i would use what ya got.

    Default Most beginners

    Box Call are recommended at most seminars I have attended. Most work.


    Mouth calls.

    Single reed work best for begginners. I perfer the triple reed.

    Slate calls work good as well.

    Im trying the Slick Tricks this year. Most turkey broadheads need wide cut.
