Another part of the arsenal a true turkey hunter has is calling. Calling a gobbling turkey from a long way off into shotgun range is one of the greatest thrills a hunter can have. There are more kinds of calls than a man can use, butwhen you break them all down, you have two basic types of calls: friction and pressure. Friction callers include box calls, slate calls and push pin calls. These types of calls all work by dragging a wooden lid or striker over a prepared surface, be it wood or slate. The Lynch world champion box call has been used to call up turkeys for years and still remains as one of the favorite calls of all time. The slate call is easy to use and has been improved in the last few years. The biggest problem with a slate call is moisture. If the call becomes damp, it won't make a squeak. This has been solved by the use of a Plexiglas striker. This type of material is not affected by moisture and you can dip the call in water if you want and it will still work properly. Friction calls are good for beginners as they are easy to use. There are many old-time turkey callers who would use nothing else than a good box call and their record speaks for itself. My favorite type of call falls under tha air pressure type. By pressure type I mean mouth calls, tube calls and mouth blown calls. My reason for using a mouth call is simple - no movement. Spring turkey hunting is a special kind of hunting. You are dealing with a mature bird that has survived one or more hunting seasons and all sorts of predators. They have been called up and shot at and are by nature a very nervous creature any way. The edge you may need to take a boss gobbler may be a call you can use without movement. Another advantage of the mouth call is tha ablility of the call to reproduce any call a turkey can make. Some expert callers can even gobble with them. If you choose this type of call, the main thing is practice, practice, practice. The calls you need to learn inthe spring are the tree call, cackle, yelp and cluck. When a hen turkey first wakes up in the morning, she makes a very low, almost inaudible, call. This is the tree call. The hens use this call to talk to other birds in the trees around them. The gobbler listens for this call and will usually gobble his head off at it. This should be the first call you make when trying to work a bird. If you have not heard a bird gobble, this is a good way to get him to sound off without spooking him. The next call a hen will usually make when she flies off the roost is the cackle. This is the mating call. It is a very loud call, starting out slow and rising to a series of fast yelps and then back down to slow yelps. If a gobbler is ready, this call could make him run over you. I have used this call a lot and it will really work. The next call is the yelp. The yelp is a call turkeys use a lot of thetime when calling to each other while feeding or traveling through the woods. The yelp is a series of five or six calls. This call alone can be used to call in most turkeys and isa must to learn. , The cluck is a single note made by the turkey looking for another turkey. A lot of the time, a bird will move in so close and make this call. It is like they are saying, "here I am, where are you?" When you have a gobbler in close, sometimes all you need is a cluck to put him at ease and he will work on in. The best way to learn all these calls is to get a cassette tape and listen to the calls being made by expert callers. Obviously, it is hard to tell someone what a call should sound like. Once you know what the calls sound like, it is a matter of practice, practice, practice. Greenbrler Osteopathic Health Care Respiratory Therapy Dept.

Is there a better way for a hard-of.hearing person to listen to TV or radio? Turning up the volume disturbs others too much? A. Hearing aid dealers carry amplification devices which con be used with o hearing aid or can work without one. These offer a vast improvement tn the volume and clarity of T V, radio, record, record/tape player sound for the hear- i~g impaired. Merely using regular stereo headphones, with the volume level turned up high, can cause ear damage--and anyone who has a hearing loss should be extra cautious. To learn more about specialized electronic aids for use when w~tching TV or listening to the radio or stereo, call your hearing aid dispenser.
