I have learned to use my turkey call
« on: February 02, 2010, 05:01:17 AM »
I went to the Hunting time Expo in Grand Rapids last weekend, I talked to a vendor about mouth reed calls  he was selling.  H showed me how to mold them to the roof of the mouth and I tried it on Sunday,   I found that my dogs do not like the sound of the Turkey call in the house.   After trying for about 45 minutes or so I got the hang of it.  If the vendor Doug Kamp sees this  Thank YOU!  I have tried several time before and I will keep praticing until I can use it in the woods this spring!   It is easy to use once you get the thing to fit!

now a new call and a new crossbow  and I am ready to go!  @--0--0118

I purchased my first turkey mouth call at a NWTF seminar.  Not wanting to embarrass myself, I went out to my truck, I unwrapped the call, and tried it.  It didn't take me long to get turkey sounds out of it.

goathunter it takes a little to get the hang of it but when you do you never lose it...when you master it, its the best call to use because it leaves your hands free to use the gun.....but for long distance I like to use the others too and use the mouth for up close......practice makes perfect and now that you  have the hang of it, practice , practice and more practice the different calls you do....if you have a turkey farm near you (not many do) go over and listen to the real birds "talk". @--0--0118

Congrats to you. I wish I could use the mouth calls, I gag every time I put one in my mouth.

yellowhammer have you tried the smaller framed ones or maybe the real large would work...I don't gag on them but you may be trying to put it too far backon the top of your mouth....sometimes just behind the front teeth will do @--0--0118

I have found a new place to practice.  I get to drive a service truck some days  and I take it with me in the truck.  That way I do not drive anyone crazy!  Except for myself!!!!!!!!  I keep looking in the rear view mirror for Turkeys chasing me.  But so far I have not had any followers.   @--0--0105

I will caution you that it will become ADDICTING. All you will do is walk around with that call in your mouth.  And no one will be as interested in it as you will be, ha ha.  What is really fun is working the mouth call and then a slate at the same time and sounding like a group of hens.  But be careful because he might run you over coming in and you will have to shoot in self defense
