More yelper practice
« on: December 29, 2021, 08:35:00 PM »
I decided to step out side tonight and record my calling so I could listen to it myself and figured I might as well put it on here. Any feedback or advice is appreciated. I’m really trying to figure these suction calls out

Wish I could get mine to sound that good.

I didn’t comment on the last video but I will say you’re sounding better, I can tell you have gained more control of your air. The best piece of advice I can give is practice, practice, practice. There really is no substitute.

Sounding even better.   You have the mechanics down pretty well.   Now, as someone mentioned earlier, keep practicing.   Some things you just figure out on your own.   

One thing I’d work on would be my clucks.   They sound pretty good, but I think they need to be shorter and sharper, more of a pop than a drawl.  Experiment with shorter but faster intake, if that makes any sense.   But you can kill turkeys with what you have going on now.

I agree. Remember, when practicing, don't work too hard. Practice often, just not too long.
You sound relaxed and that's great.
I've been playing all kinds of yelpers for a long time and I can't walk by one without picking it up and running it, lol.

I’ve been practicing pretty much every day. It helps me scratch the itch a little while I wait on season. I’m definitely not great but I am getting better and feel like I should be able to kill a bird with a yelper this year.

You absolutely can and will kill birds with that calling. That soft yelping and clucking is where yelpers excel.
Warning:
Hens are attracted to that also and often, you'll have them in your lap.
