YES, THATS IT ! I'm glad to hear from ya Kenny. I've been tryin to find out who KP calls was but was not having any success. I'm sorry to hear about how the nwtf messed up your bid, but as of late, I must say I'm dissapointed in them also. I am very proud to own the above pictured trumpet you made and am making strides in learning to use it, but using properly is gonna take a while, but I will get there. Do you have any suggestions for myself and the others on this forum who might be interested in learning any techniques that might help. Also, as you may have noticed I mail ya some other info, and are the other 2 calls, the wingbone and the tube still availible and were they at the show?
        If any one wants a quality trumpet,  I assure you, that if this fella will sell ya one, consider yourself fortunate to have it.
 
 
GOOD LUCK, GOD BLESS, AND STAY SAFE !

Thanks for the compliments. I did enter all three calls at the convention and they were all sold. The wingbone which has buffalo horn transitions, bead and lip stop did place fith in the working/ hunting class for wing bones. The bottom call is a crow call made from african blackwood with a holly mouth piece and bead. I did manage to place with both wing bone and trumpet calls in the Midwest call competion earlier this year and took fourth at nationals last year in the hunting/working class for trumpet calls.

As for as tips...Practice !  Don't rush it, try pulling air as though you are trying to breath threw the call. Pull air softly. Experiment with how your hand placement effects the sound and volume, try moving the lip stop to find what depth works for you. If you are familiar with the vocabulary and rhythm of the calls of the wild turkey it will come together with time and practice. I don't claim in any way shape are form to be some master, I just love hunting the wild turkey and have for some time. Building calls is something that just came along with the turkey hunting fascination.
