I don't know why, but the gobblers really respond to a wingbone call. I have always been tone deaf and have lost most of my high hearing. I am a poor caller, but have had very good luck with a wingbone call. I have got replies when I could not get a reply to my box call. A wingbone,  coupled with a scratch box call, I feel is a very good combination. I use the scratch box for the soft sounds.

Your calls look very nice, much better than mine. I also do not have any artistic ability. My first wing bone I put some tracks on it and wrote what it was, when and where I got the bird at. I used epoxy to join the pieces together and epoxy putty to make a smooth transition from piece to piece.

Good luck this spring.

PaBen, I get very discussed with many of the remarks and thinking of a lot of the people on this web site, to the point I think about not looking any more.  You then put on some thing that reaffirms my belief in people. You do a good job.

Very Nice Ben !

How much do your calls go for ? I would be interested in getting another, but using 3 bones instead of 2.

How goes it Fred !!!

Doing great and yourself?

I believe it is becasue the other calls are used by the masses and they get bombarded with loud aggressive calling.  Wingbone calls tend to be softer and more hen like, I believe that is why they respond when other calls fail to get a response.

This is an old post but wingbone calls came up this year so I though I would repost this thread. I started using deer antler in my calls I'll see if I can post a few pictures.

My first mentor made this one for me from the first tom I killed. I'm betting I've posted this before.  :)
