Considering how many turkeys walk the earth and that some really get pressured by hunters....I suppose some birds evolve into a virtually uncallable state.....at least at times...or it appears that they are
That said:......I think any bird Can be called in if you can catch him at just the right time...be in just the right set up spot....and give him just enough of a call which might just be cluck and scratching leaves ....it might be he can be called in the first week of the season but can't be touched afterwards....or there's a day in there somewhere where he wakes up stupid...we have those days...so will he...
It may be that he can't be called far or he can only be called over...a bit...and that you have to learn enough about him to get set up in a way that he can swing over just enough to be in range
I think on a really tough bird it truly does come down to the set up...where he has to pop up and peak over the rise or in thicker brush ...and it takes patience to wait him out and that the cluck let him know a hen is there...and the scratching leaves let's him know it's okay to come see her.
I definitely don't believe there are unkilliable birds...might be some I can't kill but someone can..there's always a way...you just have to find it.
For the record I realize how tough public land birds or heavily pressured birds are to kill.....and once
they've been messed with ...they can move into the uncallable mode or at least seemingly so.....but that bird was callable earlier on......
