Success this morning!!!

Shot this nice Merriams gobbler about 9:30 this morning. Used a combination of box call and wingbone call to bring him within shooting range.

great job.  I made couple wingbone calls this spring.  They have a pretty good sound.  Can you post a picture of your wingbone?

Thanks

Thanks all.

 :)  Congrats, nice bird. 

Love the wingbone call, especially in hard hunted areas.  I also have a skoal can call made out of slate and a corn cob that is really good once the birds get hammered for a couple of weeks, sweet soft calls, just like the real hens.

I checked your website - really nice looking calls.  I will try to make the two bone call this fall.  This is my second season using a trumpet.
