..if he's gobbling like crazy off the roost, no calling until fly down, otherwise if I only here one or two gobbles a soft tree yelp and shut-up until fly down.
...when he fly's down I shut up, unless he starts heading away from me, and then some clucks and purrs with some scratching
....as he's headed my way some excited purrs and soft clucks every now and then
....if he hangs maybe some soft yelps and cutting?
Sound about right?
Normally Yes, But this year the birds are about 2 weeks a head of scheduale, and the Toms are acting a lot like they do late in the season. I've been using more impatient hen talk and it's been working for me? The aggressive cutts, purrs, and cackles are what's been sealing the deal, if I get a bird to answer the soft stuff. Don't be affraid to switch around with your calling. You don't have to do a lot of calling, but keep it differant don't stay on just one type switch it back n forth all in the same series, soft-aggressive-soft.
