As most said, it depends on your hunting area.  2 areas I hunt are landlocked -can't get permission on "locked" areas.  Wish I could, as they are roosting and strutting areas.  I'm limited to calling them over to me.  I know where they are more likely to enter my permission land, so I set up there and wait.  I may change locations on the property -usually 200 yds max.

Another hunting area is larger and more diverse habitat.  I'll set up at one location, but if birds are sounding I'll move.

King theres a big difference between stalking and getting into position to call a bird in. Its been explained to you enough that if you don't get it by now something is wrong.

Depends on your definition of stalking Adam. To me anytime I decide to change locations in an effort to find another bird I am in the stalking mode between calling positions. I have busted too many birds rounding curves in roads and such not to be ready at all times to encounter a bird. Stalking in the real sense of the word indicates you "know" where the bird is at and you are trying to approach him un-detected. Detection is a very big part of being a successful turkey hunter since it is his eyesight that is his most effective defense. No one is gonna knowingly try and get closer than 100 yds on a mature gobbler unless the terrain allows it. This is when the calling comes into play.[;)]

The thought of maybe having a chance at being a postaffer does funny things to some guys.

Wasn't referring to dark at all. Referring to when a turkey's eyesight comes into play. Little difficult to stalk in the dark wouldn't you say?

nhtrkybstr i've used both most of the time. cause the birds i hunt are kinda spookish.[sm=s201.gif] and the briar patchs in the fields get prickly.
