Turkeys are like people in many ways; one such similarity is with the family unit. Turkeys, like people, produce and cling to their family members or flock mates until the time they disperse and go out to create their own families. Turkey flocks also seem to have their own personalities and each fall and winter flock will behave somewhat differently in the mornings.

Tree Top Turkeys™ is a series of recordings captured over a three year period of severaldifferent fall and winter flocks. These mixed flocks consisted of brood hens, young hens, adult gobblers, and a few jakes. The flockswhose calls were captured for Tree Top Turkeys™ usually had a morning routine that was very similar each morning. No matter how long it took for the flocks to fly down and begin their day, these turkeys almost always had the same basic calling ritual. They would begin with soft tree yelping and gentle clucks and occasionally you might even hear some purring from the roost limbs.

Next the turkeys would begin a period of yelping and cutting, which usually lasted longer that any other period, accompanied by plain yelping of young hens, jakes, and older brood hens. Very often you will hear them raise the excitement level as they escalate into an excited cutting series.

The third period of the morning is the excitement pre-ceding fly-down. During this time you will hear excited yelping and cutting, fast clucking and an overall elevated level of excitement and enthusiasm before they fly to the ground. In the period that follows you will hear the fly-down cackles of the turkeys as they pitch off the limbs to the ground.

The final period includes the regrouping of the young and soft feeding calls. Once the turkeys are on the ground you will often hear the small groups of jakes fighting as they vie for position in the pecking order.

 

 

Each track of each morning on Tree Top Turkeys™ has its own distinct theme and you will be able to pick out the differences in tone and pitch of the individual turkeys. Our hope is that you thoroughly enjoy Tree Top Turkeys™ as you find it a valuable aide in your journey to becoming an even better turkey caller and hunter.

Big Mouth – You will see why this track is called Big Mouth while listening to the first minute. A Jake and a hen were captured at very close range on the roost. In response to their loud mouths, rarely heard tree purring and soft yelps were returned from the other birds. Also listen for an older hen break out with an excited cutting series that’s fun to hear. Towards the end of the track when the turkeys fly down it sounds like the wing beats are right beside you.

All Talk – This is a great track, if you want to hear it “ALL”. You’ll hear the gamut of wild turkey calls, as this bit of recording is chock full of common turkey flock talk. Turkeys from the roost produce anticipation upon any avid turkey hunter, as the fly-down cackles ring out overhead. Fighting rattles really get the blood boiling. Could the Kee Kee be that of a lost young hen who wondered too far from the racket?

Can You Kee? – This track has a fantastic variety of many calls, but the one that really stands out is the Kee Kee. A Jake broke ranks and began the Kee Kee and Kee Kee Run as if inviting other jakes to form their own flock. They declined his invitation as a fight broke out among them. This was the time of year when the flocks begin to break up. 

Pecking Order – The first 3 minutes of this track are orchestrated with the high pitch of a young hen accompanied by the deep tonal yelping of a Jake. The track winds down with crystal clucks and purrs, exciting fly downs and some sharp hen cutting. Then get ready for some close up Jake fighting at the end as they vie for “top bird” of the flock.
