New Turkey Calls: Flextone Thunder Cutt'n Hen and Thunder Cluck'n Purr

By Dave Hurteau

On a recent turkey hunt at Dos Plumas Hunting Ranch in northwestern Nebraska, Tim Kent of Theory 13 Creative introduced F&S contributor Jace Bauserman and me to Flextone’s newest Thunder Series turkey calls. On the first evening, someone—I’m not saying who—took one out of the packaging, started calling, and sounded exactly like this poor, terrified cat.

“Oh well,” I figured, “just another bad-sounding, gimmicky turkey call.” Turns out, it was just the caller, not the call, and he recovered right quickly, because like the Thunder Gobble, introduced last spring, the new Thunder hen calls are extremely easy to learn how to blow, and once you get the hang of them, they sound pretty darn good—certainly good enough to fool a gobbler.

But the kicker is how versatile these calls are. As you can see in the video, the Thunder Cutt’n hen call ($16) yelps, clucks, cuts, purrs, and gobbles. The Thunder Cluck’n Purr ($16) makes all the same calls in an even smaller package. And who doesn’t want a smaller package? Wait a minute….

Anyway, there are lots of situations when I like to go without a vest and pack ultra-light. These calls are perfect for that.
