Preston Pittman Sweet Talker Friction Turkey Call is small and compact. Has a slate calling surface. Includes one waterproof striker and sand paper. A little caller with a big sound. Fits in your shirt pocket and easy to use. Weighs 1 pound. Don't let that big one get away. Waterproof striker and sandpaper included.
Pot Calls/How to Use:
- Yelping – Make small circles 1/2 to 1 inch in length. Some people prefer making a J shape.
- Clucking – Pull the peg toward you about 1/8 to 1 inch with light pressure.
- Purring – Pull the peg toward you in a half-circle with light pressure.
- Cutting or Cackling – Pull the peg toward you 1/4 to 3/8 inch.
- To achieve proper sound, apply more pressure to peg.
- When sanding most hard surfaces, such as glass or crystal, crisscross sanding is preferred. Results from sanding should be similar to ### marks on the caller. This insures that the caller can call from any direction.
- When sanding soft surfaces with a grain, such as slate, sand with the grain only. When calling, pull the striker across the grain. Aluminum can be crisscross sanded, but remember, on slate and aluminum, use fine sand paper or scuff pad.
- Hold the pot only by the rim. For maximum volume, do not touch the bottom of the pot.
- To tone the volume down, experiment with touching the bottom of the pot or hold the pot in the palm of your hand.
- The closer to the edge of the pot that you hold the call, the higher the pitch will be. The closer you call to the middle of the pot, the deeper/coarser the sound will be.
- The greater the tilt of the peg, the coarser the sound will be.
- By using these tips, you can make any of Preston’s pot calls sound like a whole flock of birds, or easily change from one sound to another.
