SUCTION CALLS

Postby mark hay » February 14th, 2009, 9:43 am

i was out this morning for a ride through the public land and discovered a small patch of bamboo,,,or is it called something else in these parts ?
recall one of j. casadas' articles on a call made of such ,,,,at least that is how i took the read.
does anybody have any suggestions or tips on making a suction call from this natural material ?

Small patches sometimes turn into very large patches...

We call it switch cane down here.  It is different from bamboo.

Go to Google Books.  Search for Mcilhenny or "The Wild Turkey and it's Hunting".  Go to pagea 182-84 and you will find the instructions for making a Jordan Yelper.  You can substitute a proper size piece of cane for the bone.

i just finished reading a few pages of McILHENNEY . advice from silvestris, and glad i did.
i've seen this authors name and book title mentioned on this forum and in the magazine but have never had the opportunity to read it. i finally made a DARING attempt at using the computer for something other than swapping turkey talk .
i must say that i am amazed at the depth of thought and the clarity of explanation given in the few short pages that i read . and to think that it was written in the early 20th century is mind boggling to me.

hey STEVE,
thanks for the tip . i checked out the calls and they are sharp .
i cut a few stalks of the cane , but i'm thinking that i need to go back and try to locate some bigger stalks with larger diameter for the 3rd section of the call .

Use Jordan's dimensions and you will be in the ball park, Mark.

Hi all, first post here. I'm an old guy that just started turkey hunting last year, enjoyed making a few wingbone calls from a couple of birds I shot last year. I have some different sized  boo growing in my backyard, I may try to make one of these calls and see how it works. Wilson
