Postby trkyklr » March 31st, 2009, 1:54 pm

I call gobbling, barking...cause when I first started hunting I wasn't sure if it was a dog barking in the distance or a turkey.

Hens don't "yelp, they "yap".  When they get going, loud and non-stop they remind me of the human species of female.

These may just be hillbilly terms

Cowlkin = Turkey Yelps Hen or Tom

Ground Raker = Mature Tom Turkey

Garholed = Sending to or placing a Hunter in a place void of game. Done as a joke or seeking revenge

Mouth yelper = a turkey caller you place in your mouth or to your lips. I think of a trumpet call will also work for a tube or mouth diaphram.
 
I remembered a couple more. 
 
Cut'um a flip = The act of rolling a Turkey with the impact of  your shot.
 
Indian foot = To slip quietly through the woods

My mouth calling has gotten better since I stopped using "chalk" as a reference word and actually started using "Yap."  Well, it sounds better from my perspective.  I can get a better high to low.
 
Some of the phrases I use are left overs from the Navy:
 
Don't nuke it. (stop overthinking things)
He's done training (dead turkey)
Snoopin' n poopin' (stalking)
We had to ditch (get out of the area)
