Am I credible enough with my wing bone?

Postby Charley B » April 19th, 2008, 10:17 am

Hi!
I try to cut and yelp with my wing bone, your comments or even sarcasm will be greatly appreciated! 
I wonder If I'm credible enough to give It a try at hunt, In early May...?

My opinion: you are trying too hard.  Check out this video by a preacher friend of mine from south Mississippi:

The wingbone is primarily a finesse caller.  You will produce sweeter yelps the softer you call.
Why be good when you can B-Mobile or Spin & Strut.

Your yelps sound good, I can hear sucking noises on your cuts.  They may not be audible futher away, asthere was some echo action in your studio.  I would try the yelpsin the feild.  Good luck.
Steve, I love "smoked" turkey

Your all right Silvestris, I was trying too hard, I was ''sucking'' too much for nothing.  Your video really helped me out, thank's a lot, for all your reply guys!
Last sunday, I went In my turkey hunting spot to give It a try and taking pictures, I had answer with the wingbone!
They seems to still hang In relativly big flock, I hope by May second (opening day) they will be In smaller group...
I would like to show you some pics, but It seems my file Is too large for uploading on my post, sorry...

Well Gobbler Nut, I picked up information about making the wingbone call on the net.  It's easy to build.  I did removed the bones from the wing, cut bith end of the bones as clos as I could to expose the hollow inside. I removed as much as I could of marrow with a thin metal wire.  After, I bring water to ebullition, with dishwasher soap and a tea spoon of bleach, I boiled the bones for one hour.  After, the remaining flesh and marow will come out more easily.
I sanded the bones to make them fit relativly snug together, I made them fit about half inch deep In the other bone, and secured It with epoxy.
After, I put some diamondback bow serving ont the joint (to make the call look better).  I put some fly fishing lack on the serving.
Finally, I sanded the end that goes on the lips until It feel good and produce a easy sound.
And for fashion purpose, I drilled holes in the spurs of my two previous tom harvested and put It on the lanyard... 
That's it [;)]
