In my experience turkey calls do not work from a treestand. If blindly calling early in the morning ... maybe but I have seen turkeys many times from my treestand while bowhunting and called to them. Every time the spotted me or turned around and walked away.  Turkeys can pinpoint exactly where that call is coming from and when ur up in a tree 20 feet its easy for them to look up and realized ur not a turkey... This is of course just my experience and my opinion. Good luck.

I live in Ontario , New York . After high school ( Geneseo - Livingston County ) I spent 4 years in the Marine Corps . Moved here in 1963 ------- long before you were born !
 
My take with the Turkey calls is not to call in turkeys but to have deer investigate . I have had deer approach turkey decoys when I was calling during spring turkey season .

OOhh Oh oH I have to strongly disagree with that as far as my experiance and being 50 I've hunted many a year and call turkey using my voice....I shot a fox in shot gun... stalking a flock of turkey ...they dispersed and I called them off the hill and one hen dang near flew into my lap as I sat in a 16ft trees stand...I've fall bowhunted turkey from my stands and flocks have reg. walked under my stands when I was gun hunting in full orange...Fasteddie we aren't far from each other and I grad. from york high school...lived in Piffard as a kid

  It seems when I go turkey hunting in the spring, I call in many deer with the turkey calls. The guys are amazed when they see the deer come in. I don't know why but they seem to want to investigate.
  Fall bow, I always have a slate w/ me to cluck and putt. It seems to relax the deer. There has been many times I've watched turkeys go thru the scrub and not too far behind them I see legs.
There's nothing like being in the outdoors. Work is boring!

Turkey Calls

Postby DeanoZ » Tue Jan 13, 2009 5:52 am

With Spring Gobbler just around the corner I figured I better start gearing up.  I use a box call, but wonder if I'd be better off with something else...anyone recommend a good caller?
