Turkey sounds or vocalizations can be confusing if you are just learning to turkey hunt. If you cannot get into the woods to hear turkeys prior to your hunt, go to the National Wild Turkey Federation website.
To hear turkey sounds and vocalizations, click on Turkey Sounds. Also, read about when to use the various different calls that the turkey makes.
Learn the turkey yelp, cluck, purr, cackle and cut. Practice your turkey calling next to your computer so you can keep repeating the turkey call you hear. You can also purchase instructional CDs on turkey calling. When possible, get in the woods and listen to the real deal. Get with a friend that knows the turkey calls or go to turkey call trade shows. Call makers are happy to show you how to use their product.
