Wingbone Yelper

Postby IDturkeyfool » February 6th, 2009, 10:17 am

Attached is a picture of 2 yelpers I made from Christmas Dinner.
 
I used the wings from a store-bought hen weighing about 15 pounds.
Articles I've read indicated the bones would be brittle - but they are fine.
 
So far I've taught myself to treecall, cackle, cluck, purr, cutt and can combine several to make addtional sounds.
I can even make a passable kee-kee and a kee-kee run.
 
I'm using both mouth and hand action to get different sounds and "lip" pressure helps to change pitch.
 
I am able to get the beginnings of a gobble, but rapid sound-no sound from the call is difficult.
Does anybody have any ideas?
 
I can't wait to get it out into the woods.

StevePA,
 
That's agreat looking call.
 
How did you add the feather and tracks?
 
Also, how do you draw on the call to get your best sound?
I find that if I hold the call to the side of my mouth, rather than from the front, I'm able to sustain more lip control.
 
Anybody else have any pointers?

Heck naw, IDturkeyfool, you draw on the caller to get the pitchers on there.
Why be good when you can B-Mobile or Spin & Strut.

mornin' all ,
good looking bones.now i am not an artist by no stretch of the imagination, as you can see from the pics on the other thread '' WINGBONE PICS''. but i'm sure some of you fellers are highly talented in this area .
i found that ink will soak and spread out through the porous bone. i put the words and tracks on the two larger bones with a lead pencil,,,then covered the small bone and sprayed the two bigger ones with polyurethane varnish. after the varnish dried i went over the pencil work with a fine pointed permanent marker. let it dry a while and gave it another coat of varnish.
also i used 'ELMERS CARPENTER GLUE '' to assemble the bones . just so happens that it matches the bone color perfectly. also i used the recipe for biulding the call from ''BILL HOLLISTER'' , as found in the hardback book on turkey hunting , put out by the ''NORTH AMERICAN HUNTING CLUB '' . HOPE THIS WILL HELP SOMEONE.

Mark on horns I have used that method.  I scribe the pattern in and fill the scratchs with marker, then sand off the poly.  On my bone I used carbon paper to trace out the patterns then scribed them in.  I went over the scribes with a caligraphy pen and ink.  I did not have any ink bleed.  I use clear 1 hour epoxy to join the bones.
Steve, I love "smoked" turkey
