Finished the yelper

Finished making the Osceola jake yelper:

And here is how it sounds:

Overall a pretty fun project.
I think the next bird I take i'll have the kids mess with them and make their own.
Biggest thing was getting as much of the meat possible off before boiling.
Other than that, the fitting wasn't too bad, a little cutting, sanding, filing to get the 3 bones to fit right.

Nice!

I made one a few years ago. Even decorated it with turkey tracks and other embellishment....then my dog chewed it to pieces. I've shot other jakes since but I've been too lazy to make another.

Good luck with it!

Very nice! I might have to try that myself one of these days. Good luck with that! ;)
The only real difference between a good tracker and a bad tracker is observation. All the same data is present for both. The rest is understanding what you are seeing.

Very nice work Sailfish. Sounds pretty realistic too.
Keep life simple...if you hear hoofbeats, think horses, not zebras.
