Jake Yelps on a Scratch Box

Trying to get better at jake yelps on my scratch box. I want to get the high pitch front end out. I don't think they sound bad, but I want to figure out if it is where I am striking the call, or if it is how I am holding it.

Any insight?

Lee Bowles and I did a swap this spring for some of my flies for one of his scratch boxes. This one is made out of Limba.

Seems to me you need to slow down and make it a longer yelp. I never hear them do that many yelps and I’ve never heard one clucking during yelping unless they’re in gun range and looking for the “hen”.

I limit my yelps to 3 or 4 at the most. That seems to be the "norm" from the real birds I've heard. You also need to be careful that a "cluck" isn't mistaken by the bird as a "putt". If they determine it to be a putt, they are gone.

this is how i typically hear them yelping. Gobblers seem to be slower and more drawn out. This one doesn't really cluck that much but I typically hear them clucking a lot then yelping very similarly to the one in this video.

If you listen to the video, the birds cadence changes during his "verbalization". His first yelp....then a short pause....then 3 or 4 of the same cadence.....then a short pause.....then done. Not on every one but listen to the cadence.

Great video!!

Hey, you got a great scratch box there. Your yelps don't sound bad, but as steeltrap said, the length and cadence is a little off. I always refer to Jake yelps as "caulking". If you want a higher front end for "hen" yelps, use the end of the call instead of the center.

GOBBLE THIS!!!
