This Saturday @ 6:00 am

It's six o'clock in the morning, and you are set up 75 yards away from a gobbling long beard in the roost. How long do you wait to respond, and please describe your calling sequence. Many thanks...

I base these upcoming events on the mood of the bird in front of me.

Re: This Saturday @ 6:00 am

what gander lander said. most of the time its best to wait till he flys down to call unless your calling is advanced anough to do fly down cackles and you hit your cap off your knee to replicate hens flying from roost,dont wanna get call happy too early.

Re: This Saturday @ 6:00 am

I rarely call to roosted birds but I almost always do a flydown with a wing. If he gobbles at that and then my leaf scratching, it usually means game over!

I don't hunt turkeys because I want to, I hunt turkeys because I have to.

<span style="font-weight: bold"> I'll give him one very soft seris of tree yelps....If he answers that, it's quiet time till he flys down OR I hear (other) hens close by....Game on, when that happens....

I choose not to say allot to a roosted gobbler....</span>

Too many variables to give an absolute answer.

This is a situation where a hunter experience plays a huge role in how things unfold.

Re: This Saturday @ 6:00 am

What usually happens in a case like this is, I'll call once or twice and then let him fly down. Then, I'll call back to him if he gobbles from the ground. I dont go too crazy once I determine he's coming my way. Then, without fail, I hear the boom of a shotgun about halfway between him and me. After that, he never gobbles again. I never see him...or the guy that got him.

Hunting: 10% skill and 90% location.
