good day to all
my youngest stepson rolled the head of a 19 pound jake 2 spring seasons ago. he wasn't interested in the wings so i snatched'm up and made 2 wingbone calls . found the recipe in ''ohio outdoor news'' which is the exact same article as printed in a hardcover book on turkeys put out by the North A merican Hunting Club. i followed the instructions to the ''T'' with the only exception being , i used ELMERS WOOD GLUE in stead of an epoxy. does that matter? i haven't a clue . both calls sound identical to me, even though one has 2 , #6 holes in it. i cut a small diameter wafer from a deer antler ,drilled a hole in the center , and then filed the hole out to form fit the outside of the small bone. glued it in place with the same glue . i've seen wingbones and other suction calls with and without this feature. but it really helps me to have better control. and to be completely honest,,, I CAIN'T USE THE THING. all i get is a noise not unlike that of a two year old child blowing on a plastic trumpet. maybe it sounds better at a distance. anyway they are neat to have around . sometime back i watched a short video on this forum ,,,that feller could make his wingbone SING like the most educated of EASTERN TURKEYS.
