Need help with calling TURKEYS!!
I'm having a rough season. I can hear the Toms but the only thing I called in this weekend was a 'yote
I was set up close to a roosting area Saturday evening and I was trying to wait out some Toms that had come out earlier that morning. I was getting bored and I had a few deer browsing close by. I started scratching the slate and the deer would look for the source of the sound. HAHAHA, they couldn't find me. This goes on for awhile until the deer go into alert mode. I'm thinking a bird is finally coming in from a blind spot that the deer have focused on. I scratch the call a little more and the deer BOLT!!!
Things happened pretty fast after that and I spotted the 'yote moving in fast on my blind side. He had thrown caution to the wind and was looking for a turkey dinner. At 12 yards he ran into the wrong Butterball!!! 3" Hevi-Shot 6's from my new 870 Express Super Mag(I finally got a big boy gun!!) with an Undertaker HD choke was absolutely crushing.
I killed this big male less than a 1/4 mile from Dad's cow/calf herd. I may not get a bird this year BUT I'm pretty sure Dad will remember this one when it is time to butcher
Not everyone gets to be an astronaut when they grow up.

Nice work IA,
Hope the birds start to show some interest. Might have to move in on feeding or roosting area's if they are not responding.Well, I generally come in at least fifteen minutes late, ah, I use the side door - that way Lumbergh can't see me, heh heh - and, uh, after that I just sorta space out for about an hour.
Da-uh? Space out?
Yeah, I just stare at my desk; but it looks like I'm working. I do that for probably another hour after lunch, too. I'd say in a given week I probably only do about fifteen minutes of real, actual, work

NICE work Pat!! You are saving turkeys by not shooting one and by eliminating a major tukey killer!!
For the turkey calling, if you can get someone to go with you then when the toms hang up have your partner walk straight away from the toms calling. The toms will think the hen is leaving and follow her bringing them right to you. Good luck!!Health nuts are going to feel stupid someday, lying in the hospital
