A henned up tom can be shot. If you can get where you hear the hens Pick out the one with the biggest mouth and duplicate her vocalizations in sounds and cadence. Sometimes this makes them mad and they will come to set the pecking order. A lot of the times they will bring the tom in tow. Late season here is they gobble on roost and then shut up for the rest of the day hens or not, more or less. Longer sits, use your eyes more. use a gobble call in with your hen calls but with less calling. thats about all I got.

i hunt em the same way as early season.they are just a little more skittish
Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

After I hear a gobble, and it's usually just one, I set up decoys and watch very closely because the toms come in silently. May be 10 min or 40 min or not at all but I think that patience must be a factor for the late season.
