I have a reprint copy of a book published I think in 1869 "44 Years In the Life Of a Hunter" by Meshack Browning

Browning was a subsistence/market hunter in western Md. from the late 1700's to past the mid 1800's.
He mentions one time hunting spring bear with a friend they heard a gobbler and the friend wanted to shoot it. Meshack mentions that he himself imitated the cackle of a hen and called in the gobbler.

I found it interesting he used the word cackle that long ago.

I think you'll kill a lot of turkeys with that call.
