This is a good little article detailing the most common types of turkey calls and their many usages.
Let's begin with one of the simplest calls to master, the Box Call. This is one of the most popular calls because it can produce a variety of sounds by stroking the top edges of the box with the lid, especially with enough practice. This basic friction call is made from two pieces of wood, a coffin shaped hollow compartment and a paddle type lid. These are fastened together at one end by a screw. It is best used to immitate the "yelp" that is the base of turkey communication. It can also produce the gobble call used by mature toms.

Spring is here again, and with it comes the much anticipated turkey hunting season.
As you prepare yourself to stalk and harvest these elusive birds, here are ten things to keep in mind to help you along the way.
- 1. Make sure you have the right weapon and ammunition. This one sounds simple enough but a low brass #7 bird shot isn't the ideal ammo. If you can afford to buy something with a turkey on the box.
- 2. If you opt to use a bow instead, it should have the right tip. Broad head tips are the best. A carefully aimed shot at the neck of the bird from between 20 and 30 yards away usually gives the best results. A specilized broadhead tip like the D-Cap will d..capitate and humanely take the bird.

Panic buying..we are all guilty of it. Be it ammo or arms we all seem to increase our consumption to near gluttonous levels. Lets talk about this.
Panic buying is an entirely natural human response, especially when facing the possibility of an impending shortage or a price increase for a popular commodity. Hordes of consumers will then rush to the stores to purchase large quantities of the product. This makes perfect sense when rushing to buy the last of their favorite ice cream brand, but it can be hindering to other consumers when you are speaking about recreational arms and ammo.
Starting from 2008, there has been an increasing series of instances of guns and ammo shortages in the US. These instances may be due to changes in the political environment, an upsurge of violent crime and the threat of certain guns and ammo going out of production. The result of these shortages is panic buying.
