I am starting to think my main problem is I don't scout enough. I know from duck hunting, if you're not where the birds want to be, they ain't coming. Period.

My turkey hunting history can be summed up very simply. Whatever I've needed a turkey to do, in order to kill him, he's ALWAYS done the exact opposite. If I set up above him, he went down hill. If I set up below him, he went uphill. If I called a lot, he answered a lot, but never came. If I called a little, he answered a little, but never came. If he was in the field yesterday for 3 hours, and I went back tomorrow and set up in the field, he was in the woods. The brush was too thick between us, and he stood at 30 yards gobbling for 2 hours. 2 longbeards answered my every call, came in at full strut, only to PANIC when they saw my 2 hen decoys, I rushed my shot, and hit a tree instead of the turkey.
These things have all happened to me.
