A gobbler will sometimes gobble at the most unusual sounds.I have heard them gobble at truck and car horns blowing while going down the road.

I'm definately a novice when it comes to turkey hunting.  BUT, I have a close friend who is one heck of a woodsman and has turkey hunted his entire life.  This is the same guy I started the "Turkey Trotline" thread about.  He absolutely swears a tom will respond to a silent dog whistle before any other locator call.  I haven't tried it yet but just bought one the other day at Academy for about $4.  I plan to give it a try this year.  My season opens this weekend.

For $4 it's worth a try.  I found it on the pets isle and it's got a Remington label on it.

I know that first hand.  I was picking up my aluminum canoe from my BIL's farm once.  He had some turkeys being raised for a 4H project.  I would drag the canoe a few inches and the birds would gobble.

Well there are many different locater calls. Such as a Hawk, woodpecker,goose and even heard of folks using rabbit squeal calls. The most common is the crow and the owl. I use the owl just before daylight usually when they are still gobbling on the roost and I use the crow on up in the morning. The crow, hawk and woodpecker calls is what you would use during the daylight times they are better known as shock gobbles. It is just that sudden burst of noise that will make that turkey gobble and let you know were he is. Heck I have heard turkeys gobble at the sound of a dog barking, car doors shuting and even Thunder on a stormy spring morning. i bet during the right time of the year anything would work. Just dont over call.   @--0--0101

while huntign i actuallly had some turkeys shock gobble to some geese that flew over. but the best way to locate them is to wait till a half hour before sunrise and wait for them to gobble to each other.

I use an owl call during early hours with great success. I have used a crow call for years during the day time without an answer, EVER. I also use the owl call after fly up to roost birds.

I am becoming more and more settled on an owl call. I'd like to have a locator in my "arsenal" just in case. But like the idea of just getting in before sun up and listening as well.
