Those ole toms come arunnin when they hear the ole YEP YEP YEP...HACK HACK GAG HACK !! They wanna watch to see just how red in the face we get!
I learned to use mine by kepping it in my mouth for a while. If ya feel like the gag is starting, just slide it over into the side of your mouth like a chew or something. When you do start getting noise out of it, you'll wonder why ya ever had a problem. If you can find a single reed, it's easier on ya and doesn't require as much breath. Don't try for volume, just yet. While you can get pretty loud, I've found that it's best used to bring the gobbler in that last bit, when he might see ya moving while working a box or slate.
He took me!
Wish you were here.
