    Anyone ever used a wingbone for a striker? I make a few wingbone calls and they make really good strikers for friction callers.

    Nope, cant say I have. How do they sound? What surface works best, glass, slate, crystal? I"m not much good with a mouth call (gags me, lol) so I depend on boxes and pot calls. I'm always up for expanding my call options.

    my favorite call is an ole'yeller produced by Knight and Hale.I use one with most all of my callers, glass,slate or synthetic. When you first use it the tip will have to be sanded off to a slight bevel. Just hold and run it the same as you would with any striker.

    The old yeller is one of my fav's too, I have the one in a plastic pot. I saw in my catalog they have a wood pot model out now. I thinks I'm gonna have to git me one. Thanks for the tip on the wingbone striker.

    John, I never thought of using a wingbone caller for a striker. I have one I made and everyone says it sounds great. I may have to make another and use it as a changeup call.

    I have quite a few that I have made and call with, but have never thought about using them for strikers. I will be trying it out though.
