I was waiting for this question or someone to tell me why it works and what it means in turkey talk. It all started one time while I was setup against an old upside down metal stock tank working some stubborn fall toms that continued to fight very vocally but wouldn't acknowledge me. As the morning sun warmed the tank it made that sound they make on temp changes. Startled the heck out me and before I could settle back down all 6 toms were standing in front me, killed what looked like the biggest and made his wings into the largest base sounding wingbone call I currently own. That call makes a fairly good boink. At the time I was excited to get that tom, the why didn't dawn on me until much later on another day when I had a similar group of toms ignoring my calls; then remembered the water tank, boinked on that big wingbone and the toms were soon standing in front of me. Like anything in turkey hunting it does not work all the time but enough to keep me using it.
Charlie, any way you can post a sound link to the "boink" you make on the wing call? I have zero skill in that department.
