I am very new to turkey hunting, but I tend to agree with Traces' tactic. Al Queda sneak attacks work relatively well. Vermont is pretty much the same way, its not uncommon to have up to 10 hens roosted next to or within 50 yards of a tom. I have found decoys in an open field don't work, especially if he can see them from his roost. I got two hens to fly right down to my deek's and he flew down in another part of the meadow away from my setup and called the hens his way. I haven't seen a lot of success with decoy's but some stand by them. If you get the right bird, who's all alone than its bound to work.
Being a novice I started to scout, scout, scout, and I patterned them just like I would for deer hunting. I found the exact trees they were roosting in, watched which direction they went after fly down. Patterning the birds last season, I setup in between and covered myself real well and let them walk by.
