The innovative Papa Strut 3D Decoy uses two printed, rigid-framed cloth pieces that fold down to the size of a Frisbee. The tail fan can be used alone, or combined with the magnetic body to form a full-size, 3-D deke that weighs just 17 ounces. MSRP: $74.
Zink Power Hen Thunder Ridge Series calls feature either slate, crystal or aluminum surfaces for your preference of hen tones. A built-in striker rougher is reason enough to buy it, not to mention the instructional DVD. The double reed Little Sister diaphragm call is used by calling legend Matt Morrett, who has killed more turkeys than the Pilgrims. MSRP: slate/crystal/aluminum call $30; diaphragm $10.
Sometimes good old-fashioned jealousy is the only thing that'll get a gobbler going. The Double Gobble call can be used as a shaker-style call, or, with the billows removed, a mouth gobble call. A handy silence cap keeps it from gobbling on its own. MSRP: $19.
Noted caller Ray Eye always says “Call 'em till their ears bleed,” and a “Hale Damage” Aluminum crow call will do it. It’s smooth and super-easy to blow. Give one to your sister’s kid if you are evil: Is that a can of snuff? Nope, it’s the Judgement Day Pro Pack of three diaphragm calls. MSRP: Hale Damage $19; Pro Pack $16.
The HS Strut Smoking Gun box call, with its slim profile that makes it easy to carry, composite edge material that makes it sound good even in the rain and a elastic band that keeps it muzzled, is a glorious all-around call for every turkey hunter who isn't afraid to do his thing in a little rain. MSRP: $29.
The rough surface of Michael Waddell’s The Untouchables Series Scarface Slate call makes it easy to scratch out perfect clucks and putts. Whoopin', hollerin' and fist-pumpin', however, is still up to you. MSRP: $19.
