Deciding how aggressive your turkey calling should be depends on several variables, not the least of which is the time of season.
Early in the season, turkeys are usually in large groups. Depending on how early your season begins, these may be either winter aggregations that have yet to break up, or more likely,
dominant toms with their harem of hens and (hopefully), a few subordinate adult males.
It may seem counterintuitive but this is the time for aggressive calling. There are several reasons for this. For starters, real birds are very vocal this time of year. They’re used to hearing a lot of calling, and you have to compete with that.
Second, they have yet to become call shy. Yours will be the first artificial calls they hear so they’ll be more receptive, and there’s less chance of making a mistake.
