There have been times when I hammered on the bird all the way to the gun. BUT! the set up MUST be one where he won't and can't see the caller until it's too late . RISKY BUSINESS. Plus he must be gobbling his head off all the way in . Have had a couple that gobbled hard up to within 50 yards or so and then went silent ,,,,if he shut down , so did I. STILL RISKY BUSINESS .
Best of my hunts were soft calls ,,,,and sparingly . Some never gobbled to any of my calls ,,,,I just happened to know he was in that holler .
This brings to mind a new thread .[:D]
