So last year I had the following problem occur, and I've been thinking about it all year. What to do? Me and my friend were hunting opening day after I already tagged my bird I thought I'd try to get him his. Public land in the Allegheny region of New York. We were on top of a nice flat hill calling down hill in all directions. We finally got a bird to answer to hard fast cutting, and aggressive yelping from about 200 yards away. Not being quite the "turkey calling expert" and taking from past experiences we sat down and waited ten minutes. I called again, but this time less aggressive not wanting to scare him off. Nothing, waited ten minutes, called again, nothing. Ten minutes later I called aggressively again, and he opened right up, double gobbling and everything. So I kept calling aggressively, and he kept gobbling like crazy. We went through this for twenty minutes to a half hour but he never got closer. So we tried to back off a bit, making him think the hen was leaving, he kept gobbling but would never get closer. So a half hour later, we moved closer to get a gauge on where this bird was. There was a lot of thick brush, and we couldn't see him, but we were withing 100 yards and he kept gobbling like crazy. We never heard a hen at all either. After dueling with this bird for around 3 hours it finally hit noon (NY has a 12:00 law) so we had to leave, we came back the next day and the exact same thing happened. I'm pretty sure we literally tried everything. I heard him off the roost, got within 100 yards, and never saw him. Never heard a hen. My only two thoughts are he was prevented from coming in somehow, maybe the brush was too thick? Or he was henned up, and we couldnt hear them? Thoughts, and strategies if this happens again?
