  Welcome!!! 

   I like the name! Hopefully a member who lives in Putnam or Westchester County can get you started up.

    Get yourself 2 Pot Calls. A Slate + a Glass Pot. If there is a slight Rain or it might Rain-- you can still call with the Glass Pot. Make sure to have a good Acrylic Striker for the Glass Pot for Wet conditions.

   If you can Yelp, Cluck + Purr- you can call up a Big Bird.

    2 ways to Yelp on a Pot. Straight downward Lines about 1" out at your 9 o'clock.

   And Counter Clockwise Small circles at your 3 o'clock about 1" in.

    Anywhere from 4 to 8 Yelps. 

    For Clucks + Purrs-- keep your fingers higher up on the Peg so it " Staggers" more. About 1" up at your 6 O'Clock and pull downward. 1 Cluck + 1 Purr. And repeat 1 more time.

   Single Clucks are also Deadly. Hit one at medium Volume . Wait 3 Seconds and another Cluck. 

   Alot of Public Toms come in silent- so be aware of that. 

    Most of your Public Spring hunters will be less then a 1/2 mile in.

      Practise your calling at least 3 days a week minimum from Jan on.

    You will do well out there.

Thanks for the advice guys. Blackbeltbill- huge rangers fan..lets see what the new season brings! fantastic details thank you so much. I have a slate, box, and 2 diaphragm calls so far...will check out a glass pot also. 

I usually use my Box around mid- morning so, I can reach Far off Toms and possibly get one to respond.  Give that a shot when all is quiet around 9.30am or so.

Great! Thanks to all for the words/advice. Really looking forward to turkey hunting... Will be night and day from deer.  There is fall hunting down here on Long island but from what I hear it's few and far between and these turkeys don't respond to a damn thing.  Looking forward to the spring season.
