Recognize, however, that the best turkey call isn't always the best move. Stickley frequently goes silent and scratches leaves to imitate the sounds of hens feeding or walking. "A lot of gobblers will come to those sounds when they won't come to calling. But make sure you get the cadence right." The cadence of a turkey scratching is usually two scratches, then one more, followed by a pause. Likewise, a walking bird will take two steps, one step, and then pause.
