All's fair in love and war. Check out these must-have turkey hunting products for the 2015 spring season.

Thunder Spit-N-Drum
When call-shy toms tend to hang up just out of range, it may be time to change your tune. The Thunder Spit-N-Drum call from Flextone does just that. No yelps, clucks or purrs, this call mimics the spitting and drumming of a strutting gobbler, and when used with a strutting decoy, tells wary birds that courtship has commenced, so get here fast! MSRP: $16.99.

Turkey Man Diaphragm Calls
Eddie Salter is an award-winning turkey caller with numerous championships under his wing and host of the “Turkey Man” TV show. So when he puts his name on the Turkey Man series of diaphragm calls from Flextone, you can be sure they’ll work. The “Drama Momma” is a batwing-cut triple-reed that delivers two-tone hen notes and raspy cackles like a pro. MSRP: $9.99.

Lockdown Glass Pot Call
If you’ve ever lost a striker in the nooks and crannies of your turkey vest, or own a collection of mismatched calls, Flextone’s new LockDown Glass pot call should spur some interest. The “Magnetic Lockdown System” mates the striker to the pot, protecting it from damage and loss. The striker also houses a sandstone conditioner for quick, in-field touchups. MSRP: $27.99.

Limb Shaker Pro Pack
Because we can’t all put birds to roost, locating a big tom before calling him in is often necessary. The Limb Shaker Pro Pack from H.S. Strut puts the tools into your hands. Using the Limb Shaker Owl Hooter, locating girl-crazy birds is a few hoots away. The new Limb Shaker Glass Pan Call comes pre-sanded, sending perfect love notes right out of the package. MSRP: $29.99.

Retro Series Diaphragm Calls
The new Retro Series diaphragm calls from H.S. Strut may look like your father’s calls, but looks can be deceiving. They’re 100 percent modern on the inside. Like the Split V-II: Built around Hunter’s Specialties Premium Flex frame, this ultra-thin double-reed call will make gobblers toss reason out the door for even a glimpse at the sweet siren. MSRP: $8.99.

Bamboozled Box and Pot Call
Bamboo has higher strength than wood, brick and even concrete. It’s that strength Primos Hunting honed in the creation of the new Bamboozled Box and Pot calls. Casting extremely loud and crisp tones, these new calls produce sounds big birds want to hear. The box call has a bamboo lid and hardwood box and the pot call features a bamboo pot, crystal surface and laminated striker. MSRP: $24.95 (pot); $29.99 (box).

Chicken on a Stick
There’s a new trend in turkey hunting that’s all about getting a big ol’ tom in close (we’re talking mere yards), and to do that you need to tick him off a little. The Chicken on a Stick Fanning Jake decoy from Primos Hunting inspires that aggression. Decoy stake includes a gun rest so your gun will always be at the ready, and a mount for your sport camera to record the in-your-face action. Folding silk fan and real feather fan holder included. MSRP: $39.95.

Gobbstopper Jake
Turkey decoys are used to mimic real birds. A taxidermy bird will work great if you can afford it, but with some of the keenest eyes in the woods, that wise gobbler won’t be fooled easily by inferior plastic. Designed by world-class sculptors with ultra-realistic detail and paint scheme, the new Gobbstopper Jake from Primos Hunting is the next best thing, a premium decoy at a pauper’s price. MSRP: $39.95.
