being new i would definitely get a decoy turkeys have very very good eye sight. i would almost go so far as to say they can see you blink from 50 yrds. so the more distraction you have for them the better keeps them from scanning for you. as for a call... id go with a chalk box.. i have a problem with the diaphragms they all but gag me. and they are easier to get the correct sound as far as pitch and calls go. maybe electronic? depends on your state regulations..
