When talking turkey, say the right thing

American Indians sucked on turkey wing bones to imitate the calls of turkey hens. Modern hunters have more options. Friction calls, including the common box call, rely on the sound made by rubbing wood on wood, glass or slate. Tube calls force air through a narrow opening, and mouth diaphragm calls are self-explanatory. Savvy spring gobbler hunters carry several types of calls to make sure they can make the right sound when they need it.
