From another gobbler wing. I like the way it turned out and it sounds pretty good. I think this is the first I've made with 3 bones instead of 2.

Very nice! How much time do these usually take you?

well first you have to clean the bones and boil in water with dish soap and I also add some borax, boil for maybe an hour, rinse and scrub clean, cut off ends with a hack saw, clean out all the marrow and strands of bone inside, then you can get to fitting the pieces together, gluing etc. really I don't have an idea of how much time it takes but including boiling I would say 2 hrs or so depending on how nice you make the call. I wrapped this in thread at the joints and soaked the tread in super glue and glued the joints together with super glue and glued the lanyard with super glue including the knot so it won't come undone. Used a solder iron to carve date and initials but that took longer than it does with wood. Also blow torched the end... Almost messed it up, but turned out all right

looks great! But IMO a hens wingbone produces a much better sound.

well I have been looking forward to the fall season to find out how a hen bone sounds. The gobblers already sound pretty good, I've fooled at least 3 birds, probably more, so far with one
