    Hey daniel, you must be getting ready for some spring turkey hunting. Yes I think is a good idea to carry several strikers made of different woods and materials. Each will make your pot call sound different.
    I don't have any experience with the slick stick. All I use to condition my calls and strikers is small piece of 150 drywall screen. If your pot is slate then use a piece of Scotch Brite scrubber.

            That's great Daniel your Dad is a lucky man to have a son like you. Hope you and your Dad have a good hunt. What state are hunting in and when do you get to start?
            I love turkey hunting spring and fall, use a turkey dog in fall to breakup the flock and then call em back in.
            I'll be starting the first week of April here in WI with 10 year old grandson. It will be his first hunt, can't wait.
            I have a blog were I write about turkeys a little bit at www.charlieelk.com might find a tip or 2 there too.
            Let me know what I can help you with.

              Charlie: One of the things I have always liked about your posts is that you always take the time for our younger hunters. You are always so very willing to share your passion and expertise.
              Daniel: You have a great time with your dad and enjoy every moment. Keep us up on how the hunts go.

                  Sounds like a great place to hunt.
                  Steve Hickoff tells me NY is a fabulous turkey state.
                  I've been thinking about hunting with the guys at Turkey Trot Acres during the fall. Steve Hickoff hunts there every year and highly recommends I make the trip out East, so I may be there for the Hickoff Kickoff some year.
                  Good hunting Daniel.

                    Yes, it is a very good idea to have at least two different strikers for each pot, each kind of wood sounds a little different, and other kinds of materials (metal, carbon fiber, etc.) have their own sounds as well. I am a part-time custom turkey call maker, so IMO you can never have too many calls .
                    I haven't tried the Primos Slick Stick, but I have an off-brand conditioning tool that works great, so I am assuming the Primos one is good as well.
                    Good luck out there this spring.

                      thanks!! charlie elk- yes ti is the birds are here i just have trouble geting them to come to me. i am going to try to scout some any tips? not sure if crow calls will work in are area because we have so many here. but i am going to try a owl hooter from h.s. strut. in your experience how well do trail cams work for turkeys? also i don't want to many mouth calls but is it better to have 2 or 3 rather than 1 thanks again, Daniel

                        Daniel,
                        I don't have good success with using crow calling as a locator, there is a ton crows around in my area that never shut which I think, keep the turkeys accustom to their sounds.
                        Occasionally a trail cam will get turkey pictures. The problem with using them for hunting is that turkeys are very random in their habits. There one day not the next. Those who hunt them like deer by waylaying, have poor success rates for turkeys.
                        My gag reflexes are the best in the nation so I cannot give any advice on the mouth diaphragm calls. The only air calls I use are wing bones, trumpets, tube calls and ink pens.
