    3 weeks before the season starts in Ohio. I woke up this morning to gobblers on the roost gobbling. Yes, it gets your blood going.

      One more thing and I'll go!
      Do any of you make wing bone yelpers from your turkey's wings? Easy and really neat!

        First Bubba - I have not made one but would love to try. How do you do it?

          I've thought about hunting Redlands, but I have access to some private lands in Morgan County. I haven't been out yet, but I plan on going out next weekend.

            Check your "comment" section! I did the best I could and hope you "understand" it all.
            E mail me anytime if I can help.

            One thing I did forget.
            I use a fine hacksaw blade to cut the end of the bones.
            Cut each end back about 1/8" at a time until you get the "desired" fit.
            Fit is kinda sloppy, but the glue will take care of that.

            Good luck! Post a "pic" when you complete one!

              Bioguy, that's my county! I hope the hunting is good for you! Most of the people around here already hunt their tracts, or sometimes ask ridiculous prices for leases.

                Hey bubba thanks for the info. It does seem pretty simple and I will definately be giving it a try with the wings from my next bird.
                I can't think of a more gratifying feeling than harvesting a bird on a call that you have made. That is going to be fun!

                  Here's a website that may be a bit (LOL!) more helpful!

                  www.customcalls.com/makeawingbonecall1.htm

                  Biggest difference is I don't trim the bones until after they've been boiled. Marrow comes out much easier.

                    I drove from Colorado to MN on Saturday and the toms were strutting all over Nebraska and Iowa. It was really neat to see. Season doesn't start till the 17th in MN. I didn't draw a tag so I can't hunt till middle of May. Can't wait.
                    Good hunting to you all.
