yea the hen call for sure. For beginners i would say a raspy hen(mouth call) is pretty easy to get the right sound out. Or a simple box call. Just gotta call and you'll hear em. It helps to do your homework like timberghost said. Look for the ground all scratched up. Also the night before you go out, use a crow call right after dark and they will answer and that will give you a good idea of where they are roosting that. We have called turkeys in from like a long ways away..

Also it is a good tip that when you see a bird, dont move. Use a mouth call with a facemask on so they dont see ur mouth moving or the white of your face. Just always keep ur gun pointed at em and dont wait til the last minute to adjust.

Turkeys (toms) will also tend to circle you before they come in so dont think they are getting away just then and fire a pop shot. Be patient, they might circle back around... hope this helps..good luck!
