Calling with no call at all?

Postby n57flyguy » September 8th, 2009, 4:16 pm

I havn't posted much on here recently, however I thought I'd drop by.
 
Recently I have found I'm replicating turkey calls without any calls at all and was wondering if anyone does the same thing? I find its more fun trying it with just your own mouth rather than using a diaphragm or any other calls.
 
Anyone else experience this "problem"?

Your lucky, man! I wish I could replicate turkeys without a call!

I have to use slates and boxes to lure them in, always watching, and use my mouthcall if need be.

I'm not very good with my mouthcall, so I just do my best.

Funny you should ask ,,,I just whistle kee kee'd to a flock of 2 hens and about 10 juveniles on monday evening . Had the old hen crankin' out some yelps and clucking too. It took ten minutes but they all came over for a look . It was fun , fun , fun ,,,,,I forgot all about shootin' doves and walked back to the house .
 
Listening to all those young birds make their kee kees was great .

In my opinion , the imitation of a turkey or turkeys scratching is as good a call as there is ,,,,,,,,,if you can get away with the movement.

If the fingers would be considered a caller then so would a puckered up whistle . I think the idea is about calling with no other device than you mouth , voice or hand.

I am not good with my voice.  I tried it once many years ago while archery seasons was on and I saw a flock of turkeys in the distance.  I made yelping sounds as best as I could and they came in. However, I think they thought I was a sick turkey and felt sorry for the sound they heard.  I never tried it again

I can make a passable cluck and whistle a kee kee,,,,that's it . But for the sake of conversation , I'd say it's like when we were learning to ride a bicycle. Sure there was someone that laughed at times . And we all probably had a bunch of wrecks too. But , we kept at it TILL IT WORKED ! And before too long we were showin' off as we pedalled around with no hands on the bars .
Those fellers that can make ALL the turkey calls with just their voice or mouth didn't likely get it all figured out in a week,,or two ,,,or ten,,,,but they no doubt kept at it, and keep at it still.
