KEE IT UP
Turkeys begin talking almost as soon
as they break out of their eggs in late
spring and early summer.
At first, they make peeping sounds.
But by September and October, those
turkeys that hatched earlier in the year
have grown into adolescents. And like a
lot of teenagers, their voices have begun
to change.
Those same peeping sounds now
become crackly, resulting in a sound that
resembles kee.
Turkey hunters likely are familiar with
the kee-kee run - a series of those crackly
kees that opens up into a yelp. The run
easily is replicated on a slate call, and it
can be a turkey hunter's best ally in the
fall woods.
With Pennsylvania's rugged and rolling landscape, breaking up a flock often
sends birds out of sight from one another.
With the flock scattered, you could yelp
like a boss hen to try to pull the younger
birds in. But those youngsters, which
have been hearing their mother's voice
since before they were hatched, often

aren't fooled.
The kee-kee run aims instead to mimic
one of the youngsters, which often results
in a sibling coming in to the call.
With a circular slate call, always
remember the edge of the call is used to
create a higher pitch, and the pitch lowers
as the striker is brought toward the center
of the call. The kees are made with short,
single strokes that follow the contour of
the call's edge. Then, the last kee in the
series is extended into a yelp. Just drag the
striker downward and toward the center
of the slate, then backstroke, making a
shape like an elongated teardrop.
Pay attention to the inflection of the
call, which should sound like a young
bird that's lost.
The call often is easier to make if you
grip the striker near the bottom, which
reduces vibration.
Many hunters string together three
kees before making the yelp, but runs
containing five or even 10 kees also
can work to fill your fall turkey tag this
November.

THE KEE-KEE RUN AND
FALL TURKEY SUCCESS
