I'll even sweeten the pot.  Send the entire wings and I'll build you a personalized wingbone yelper in exchange. 



I need all the bones from the breast on down...

To the top for the upcoming 2016 turkey hunt.  Got some really great primaries last spring in exchange for personalized wingbone calls from this group.   :tup:
Is there a certain way to take care of the wings before you ship them and what is the best way to package them. We usually get half a dozen birds if things go right

emac...I usually tell folks to put them in a plastic garbage sack and freeze ASAP, then box them up to mail on a Monday if possible so they arrive before the weekend.  Some guys prefer to bone out the wings and snip off the primaries...but still freeze the bones in a zip lock bag.  The bones and feathers make a smaller package then the whole wings.  As soon as I get them I bone them out, clean up, cut them down to shape and boil the bones. 

Some guys will rinse blood off the feathers before it dries, but I can usually deal with it without too much effort.
Ok thank you. My hunting buddy is a taxidermist so I am sure he knows what to do with them also. We are taking his brothers out for the youth season coming up I will let ya know if we get any.

I seriously haven't forgotten about you and still have all the feathers and wing bones for you. I'll get the feathers in the mail tomorrow and wing bones next Monday. About ready to start another round this year and should have a bunch more. :tup:

Been getting lots of great wings/feathers this year from Oregon and Washington, appreciate them all.

If you have some wings and haven't already sent them to me, please keep them frozen for another week or two. I'm leaving tomorrow for a week of camping/turkey hunting/shed hunting/photography in northeast Oregon.

Thanks boys & girls!   :hello:

  I got some awesome primaries from Washington hunters last year.

Contact me if you'd like to exchange your wings for a personalized Wingbone call.

Good luck youth hunters!

I just peel my feathers and cut with scissors on my primitive arrows, interested in how you dye yours and do you sand the quill down?
May my presence go unnoticed, may my shot be true, may the blood trail be short.

Amen

I peel them for primitive arrows, but grind them for all other arrows. Have a jig I use with a sanding drum on my drill press.

I use several kinds of dyes, better variety and much better then the kool-aid treatment IMO.

Sure is!  I never turn down wings or feathers. 

Good luck to all the hunters this weekend.  I might go out and fight the Oregon onslaught.   :chuckle:

We've got a few wings if you want them.  Send your address and we will send them down.  Just waiting for a friend to take what he wants for fly tying but the rest are yours.  We saved everything from 4 turkeys.

If you can freeze them, please do.  My wife and I are leaving Saturday on a road trip to Utah and Arizona.  I'll get ahold of you when I get back home.   Thanks!

Just a heads up.  If you have wings/feathers you'd like to trade for a wingbone call, please freeze them for a couple weeks.   My wife and I are taking a trip to the red rock country of southern Utah and on down to the Grand Canyon.  We have two weeks to goof off and hopefully find some drier, warmer weather.

Thanks to all the folks that have sent wings so far, much appreciated.   I have quite a few calls already made, and will be busy at the end of May and early June getting them all knocked out for you folks.    :tup:

Man those yelpers look cool! :tup:


They are!  I had one done a number of years ago. 

For anyone thinking about this, do it!  You won't be sorry.

Thanks Tree Killer! Talk about artwork! Great calls that sound great. Now that I know how to use them. Brady and Brandons calls were built from there very first hunt and very first turkeys. They will be presented to them in the most honorable way!!!!!! :IBCOOL:
