Hi, Bob...welcome from NM.
How are your birds for responding to locator calls? Our Merriams here are very vocal on the roost, both in the mornings and evenings. I always start out by finding the gobblers with roost locating tactics, and then proceed from there. Locate the gobblers, set up close before daylight in the mornings and try to call them off the roost first thing. If that fails, and if I have a lot of country to hunt, I'm runnin' and gunnin' for the rest of the day until late afternoon. At that point, it is back to the roost areas located and try to call in the gobblers going back to roost.
