Could not get call to make a realistic yelp. Clucked okey.

The Do-Ral single hand yelper is a good call to add to your yelper battery. It has a sweet easy to produce sound. The down side is that you will need one hand free from your gun to use it and it is very soft volume. For close birds I keep my gun tucked in with my right hand and use my left with the Do-Ral. It is a nice tree yelper and a good finisher.

Rated 3 out of 5 by 42Diamondback High Pitched Call - Nice but not quite
I wanted so much to like this call and hoped it would work as advertised. I have a genetic problem in that I cannot make a good purr with my mouth call. Just can't do the trill like so many other fortunate callers can do.
Anyway, I had great hopes for the call. But, yes, it was not up to expectation. It would work ok for the beginner caller I suppose, with practice, but it was kind of picky and hard to make nice soft purrs. It is a very high pitched call and the purrs are more like fighting purrs and not quiet contented purrs. If you hide it in your coat or cup it in your hands it might be ok. Also, I can see an issue when you are walking in that it has no safeguard to keep it from "working" while you are walking and bump it.
I'll stick to my slate calls and keep practicing.

by jerseyjack Great hen turkey imiation sounds
Accidentally broke first one I bought from L.L. bean four years ago. This call makes all the clucks, purrs feeding hens use. I use this call to imitate hens feeding in the woods or field edges. It has three sound levels to talk a tom to you. Forget the yap, yap, yaps you hear on TV programs that's just for show. Two 24 and one 25 pound tom last three years all state F&G weighted.

This call has been a powerful edition to my arsenal of turkey calls. Anyone that hunts turkeys knows that a call must be multi functional in reproducing the sounds of a wild turkey. This call can reproduce all sounds of the wild turkey except for the gobble. The user must understand the sounds reproduced and assume responsability of making mistakes because of the lack of practice. With practice this call can be one of your best weapons.

While this call does produce a nice cluck from the last thumb position, the first two grooves will throw out an alarm call... in other words, this call scares off turkeys. Opening weekend my friend and I had (and lost) several gobblers while using a mix between this call and a classic box call. We could tell they loved one, but not the other... a little research answered our question - the Do-Ral produces an alarm call, which sends 'em running. While the cluck is nice and there is a decent range of calls you can work out of this thing, it seems foolish to buy a call that is prone to alarming gobblers. I would discourage anyone from buying this product and recommend sticking to a box or mouth call. Good luck out there!

I've got the slate call and it's a good little call. I need to practice on it some more but should be fairly easy to master. It will get a work-out in a couple of weeks.

Very happy with this one-handed call. Produces a great variety of calls. Impressed with the quality and craftsmanship. Highly reccommend purchasing to the Avid turkey hunter or call collector. Made in the wonderful USA.
