The methods given below apply to all mouth diaphragm turkey calls. But, if you get the Call "Purr"fect turkey call kit, you can actually do something about the diaphragm calls that don't sound right!

  1. Place the diaphragm call in the roof of your mouth with the latex strips toward the tip of your tongue and the taper of the horseshoe toward the back of your mouth (tab down).
  2. Use the sides of your tongue to hold the diaphragm in place against the roof of your mouth, so that air can pass over your tongue and under the latex strips.
  3. Sound is created when air passes the latex strips. For most sounds, a deep breath blown past the latex strips will produce good results.

Calling Exercises

PURR. Short, rapid bursts of air from your lungs will produce this undulating high-pitched call. To make this call, form your lips as if making the "UR" sound.

YELP. Round your lips to form an "O" shape when making this call. Drop your jaw to adjust the sound.

CUT. Keep your lips together when starting this call as if pronouncing the letter "P", then form your lips to pronounce the silent letter "U" as if saying "cut cut cut". Trap the air between calls with your lips.

KEE KEE. Form your lips as if pronouncing the "EE" sound.
