you can also try a jake decoy in the hen mounted positionthis tends to PO the boss gobbler

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.

I hardly ever use a decoy any more. Seems that about half the time when that mature tom sees the decoy he splits quick fast and in a hurry. the other half they lock up out ther at 60 yards. I'd say I have had a decoy work 1 time in ten. I have better results with out one. But hey don't be afraid to try it all you never know.

"just throw it out there" is a pretty good idea at times too. turkeys are odd.

yup i was thinking he could also try the fall trick off busting up the flock but thats more of a last ditch effort for me.come on spring season

Ever hunt with a buddy? Try this, set up like Ronn said about 30 or so yards off a field. When a tom shows up to your calls but won't come in for the kill, sit tight and have a friend sneak back in the woods 50 yards or so from u and start calling again. This tells the tom the hen is moving on and if he wants to get some he better come looking.

Yep, I tried it last year on some hung-up toms, but, my partner moved when he should not of and spooked some hens coming into my right side that he could not see.
