I think you answered your question. Get in the woods, it's harder for them to see you or a hen. No decoys needed.
^Same here. I would suggest you do some long range early season scouting to see if you can find where those birds like to hang out & roost. There are also travel corridors turkeys sometimes favor, like creek bottoms, logging roads, & deer trails. If you can figure out which way they like to go between roosting areas & strutting zones, you should be in business by calling them to a place they already wanted to go.
As good as hunting out of a pop-up blind can be, don't be scared to use some natural vegetation and downed trees.
If you can zero in on a strut zone in a small opening or wooded clearing, it can be a bonanza, eapecially if there is a natural place to conceal yourself nearby & you can get in there quietly. Logging roads in the woods can be great places to set up along, especially if there is a slight curve or intersection in that road that puts turkeys in your range, but leaves you hidden.
