Often times we have articles and other works submitted by our members here on the Turkey Hunting Forum. Gary Meinke, a GSN member submitted this Dead Turkey Observation and Examination quiz, which contains a great deal of interesting information that might just stump even the most seasoned turkey hunters among us!
The kee kee run is a must have call for fall turkey hunting, but can be effective in the spring as well. In this video, Sadler Mcgraw, Matt Van Cise, Shane Hindershot and Scott Ellis perform their version of the kee kee run at the NWTF calling championship.
Take note of the common sequence of the kee kee run, which sounds like “pee pee pee yawk yawk.” The kee kee is often used with 3 kee kees followed by a couple yelps.
If you’ve ever bumped a group of young turkey during the fall, you’ve probably noticed the way they use the kee kee run to regroup.
We home these videos of turkey sounds will help you become a better turkey caller this spring in the turkey woods!
Turkey Sounds – Excited Yelp!

Turkey Sounds – Yelps, cuts and kee kee
This is from the same group of guys, the Southern Gentlemen on YouTube. The entire video has some great calling, but starting at 2:40 you have some great spring time kee kee runs. Most young turkeys kee kee in the fall, but as this video shows, turkey do kee kee in the spring as well. With a little practice, the kee kee can be done quite easily with the mouth call. Click here to see a video of Jimbo Lindsey doing the kee kee with a pot call. Again, its not too hard to do – the key is to pinch or torque the striker and you typically run the call toward the outer edge.
