In a couple days that bird will work for you again with that same call, as long as he didn't bust you or you spooked him away. When that bird was coming in, was he silent or was he gobbling ever so often? If that bird gobble when he was close to you, then he was looking for you and couldn't find you, he knew you were there but couldn't see a hen. I'm guessing that you only yelped and clucked at him? Once you have a bird coming and he's coming straight at you, there is no need to ever yelp at him, he knows were you are and he's coming. If he starts to angle then give him a couple quick short yelps, that tells that bird he's going the wrong way and needs to get back in the direction he was coming. If the bird is within 70 yards then just cluck and purr, or whines or keeyelps, scratching the leaves, so he knows that your still there even though he can't see you. Learn what calls to give him to close the deal, if all your doing is yelping at that bird, that tells hin your a hunter and not a hen. Real birds don't yelp to a gobbler coming towards them that they can see, they get excited and will call faster and short little calls in a high pitched sound. If your hunting high preasured birds, "It's Very Important" that you learn what calls to give them, how much calling you give them and most important the volume your calling with, if that bird is 50 yards or less and you can hear your calls your too loud, call very softly!!! If that bird turns to leave, that's when you blast him with volume and fast yelps, or a short series of cutts, that tells him "Where You Going I'm Over Here. Learn to control the volume of your calls, if your using box calls then put your fingers up on the rails and pinch it to tone it down, if your running pot calls hold it down on your leg, if your using mouth calls keep you mouth shut when calling, if your using a push-pin put your finger on the screw on the bottom of the call, that tones it way down. High preasured birds are very touchy to volume and the amount of calls you give them.
