Slate or pot style calls are a type of friction turkey call. It has two pieces, a slate or glass “pot” and a striker. Hold the striker like a pencil and flip the top end away so the striker is at an angle moving back towards you. Create a yelp by making a small circle, oval or diagonal motion without lifting the striker. The down motion creates sound but the upward motion should not. To make a cluck, just slightly pop the striker towards you. Cutting is a faster pace than the clucks. Mix cutting and yelping together for a more realistic series of turkey calls.
