The calls: Owl hooting was once the primary call used for roosting turkeys, but today all manner of calls, from pileated woodpeckers to coyote howlers to gobble tubes, are used in an effort to make birds gobble. Although I've tried them all at one time or another, my favorite roosting call is an oversize boat paddle box call. I'll start with an eight-yelp series and listen for a bit. If I get no response, I'll cutt hard and then fade into a series of yelps. It's been my experience that birds will respond quickly. If not, I move on to the next roost site.
