Gobbler Talk (keeyelps)

Postby WillowRidgeCalls » April 3rd, 2014, 7:34 pm

You guys have heard me talk about KeeYelps, and that it's a greeting call gobblers use as they get together. It's a soft call that can only be heard a short distance, but every aged gobbler will use it. It's just a friendly call that they do as they meet up in the mornings or afternoons. It's a great and effective call to use as a gobbler is coming in, or if he's showing a bit of reluctance to come in all the way. It works great on sub-dom birds that have been put in their place by a boss gobbler. It's a call worth learning and using often.
This video that Shane did a couple weeks ago has a lot of gobblers keeyelping as they come in and it will show you how often they do it, you'll also notice as the hens starts to yelp what a gobbler does, meaning he locks up and often turns around and stops coming in, if he hears yelps when a bird can see the other bird. Use this to improve your calling technics and it will help you harvest more birds.

oh so that's what you mean by a keeyelp. Ive heard them do that before, but always thought it was some garbled purring/putting. Now it's time to try and figure out how to make that sound on a mouth call ;)

If you can't with a mouth call then try your Teaser, they are real easy to do on there.

Didn't hear what y'all were talking about from the turks. Could you run the "kee yelp" for us on a call?

You can hear the Keeyelps real easy in the last segment where Shane has those two gobblers running across the field to his decoys. They start Keeyelping as soon as they start coming, (right about the 10:08 mark on the vid) until that hen starts yelping as they get close to the decoys.
