Thanks for that post, Scott. I really enjoyed both the article and the video. I don't use tree calls all that much because I've always heard that if you tree call and a gobbler is close by, then he'll sit and wait up in his tree until the hen flies down first. But after reading this article, I may have to reconsider that tactic. And by the way, I got my glass call out yesterday that you made me, and it makes some great tree yelps[:D]
I have a question, though, that pertains to this subject and instead of posting another thread, I'll go ahead and ask it here.
In that article, he mentioned something about if it's not too humid in the morning, he'll use a slate to do some tree yelps after some tree pitts. Here in KY, it's always humid, which makes it difficult to produce good sounds from a friction call in the morning. Does anyone know of a good way around this, besides just putting in a mouth call?
