    Which do you prefer, the box call, the slate, or the diaphram for turkey hunting? I have gotten pretty good with the slate and struggle still with the diaphram. I am new with the diaphram so I am still practicing.

    My vest usually has a slate or two, a box, a Quaker Boy Easy Yelper, 6-8 diaphragms, and an assortment of locator calls. To me, it's like fishing, different tools for different applications.

      they have all got their own purposes, so I like them all! and keep practicing with that diaphragm, it takes time but you can do a lot with them.

        always keep a diaphram in my mouth, and 2 more in my vest, along with a box call, a slate, and a crystal. each has the own application. i dont use the box call much anymore, that was more when i was learning. slate is for soft clucks and purrs, crystal is when i want loud, crisp, yelps and cutts, but it can also do softer calls. diaphram i can yelp and cutt on, but its mostly there for when a turkey is in view and movement is not an option.

            I like the box call if things get hoppin I'll get my diaphragm call in my mouth for when I am close, I own a slate call but can not produce the calls I can with a box, its easy and simple and that gets me results in the woods.

              Btw the way when you practice with your diaphragms just make the sound chick, after that you'll get the feeling of the call and take off from there. After that it gets easy, that is how I learned how to use it thansk to a goood teacher.

                I like my slate call probably the most out of all of them. I like scratchgolf72 like how I can get good cuts and purrs out of my slate.

                My box call works well for locating birds, since it had the most volume.

                But I love swooning a big tom in with my mouth calls too. If it makes a turkey sound, I will tend to use just about anything.

                  If you get good at using a mouth call it is by far the best choice. I just started using one this year and i like having my hands free.

                        I have used them all and I do mean them all, but I have it pared down to a box for long range and a diaphragm for when I have to be still.

                          All have their place. I don't know if one is really better than another but each has its merits. My advice is to practice to become efficient with each type.

                            If you are unsure about your diaphram abilities then don't use it.
