Truck door my go to locator. Close second to my horn. Lol

My 10 year old sneezed the other day. It worked too.

But really, add some locators to the bag. Honestly i typically run and gun all day with just my hen calls. Stop and call often. Once located determine if you have time to close the gap. I always try a least a little. Unless they are right on me.

Gobble scares me. Too many idiots shoot at sounds. Aa far as one running in to a gobble, 15 years chasing turks and plenty have hit the dirt, i have never seen one come to a gobble. My  :twocents:

Thank you for the reply! Other locators will be my investment for next year. And are you kidding or serious about the door and truck horn? Lol

Lol. I cant even count how many birds got killed because i didnt shut my door quietly. Use my horn when roosting at night. Or coyote howl

Well then, lol I guess my efforts at being quiet are somewhat counter productive then ain't they? Lol

Crow call pilliated woodpecker peacock call coyote howler are all good locators.
Leave him alone until late morning to early afternoon. Roost them birds at night, put them to bed then sneak back in in the morning bout 45 minutes to an hour before the sun comes up then your ready for them when they pitch out of the trees.

Just got back from an Idaho Turkey trip...have to say it was a very tough hunt! We managed to get three birds but we had to work hard between the rain and hail storms. The birds were not talking much and even when they did they would not leave the hens. I was not much of a believer in gobbling but that was the only way we could keep them fired up and bring them into the decoys. They seemed to go crazy when they seen our spread of hens with a jake (bought the new avians for the trip...highly recommended). Watched three big gobblers on a hill side for over an hour and tried a few light hen calls and nothing...gobbled once and they went crazy. Tried locating them with different  calls  in the evenings and got zero responses. We seen lots of birds but they just werent talking much. Just my :twocents:!!!
Good luck on your hunt and hope you get one!

One more thing we did see birds at both high and low elevations but the majority were down low :tup:

The reason Idaho birds don't talk is because Idaho ranks 49th out of 50 States in Education, most them just don't know how to form words properly. :chuckle:  When you live on the Liberal side of the State Line but do everything but sleep in Idaho like I do, I gotta take the cheap shot.
