    Re: Getting started on turkey box call

    I just broke up a turkey fight about 2 hours ago. My two turkey hens we're in a fight to the death. I had to to pull them apart by their tail feathers. I'm used to my toms fighting but not my hens.

    Can you get a higher pitch? If so, it would be really close to the sounds a turkey makes. Maybe use some chalk on you paddle, might produce a higher pitch.

    A slight curve on the reed ( for lack of not knowing what it's called) where the paddle rubs, will create the higher pitch.
    Looks good though, eye pleasing design.

    Re: Getting started on turkey box call

    I want to shorten the sound boards, but I am not sure if I want to keep the edge at 6 or square it off? And I am hoping that a little sanding is all I need to get that glue run line off. Unfortunately I didn't get back to it in time and it dried in place.

    The paddle will be cedar, though I am not sure on the width or the springing of it. But live and learn, right!!

    If you could make the perfect turkey call box from the get go - you would be a rich man. Tweak tweak tweak... Or should I say Yeep Yeep Yeep -:lol
