...btw changing calling positions and stalking are two different arenas though...

Now, you know and I know that hunting on our little private plots, we're probably the only ones there. Making a strategic advance on a gobbler or slipping in a bit closer may be okay. [color="#cc0000"]I was crawling on my belly last year after closing over 200 yards of distance on some gobblers, but I'd been glassing the flock for an hour, and was able to get to within 60 yards. Stalking? [/color] Nope. It was an end-around. In the end, I put my butt down and got my shotgun up, and I waited for them to come out of an oak grove and walk down a fence line. I then tried to call them out towards the little copse of trees I was in.
Well, Steve, was Shaman STALKING, or, do you wish to reconsider your definition?
Not so fast there Steve. Is he stalking or isn't he? I could care less if he called and the birds didn't answer. That didn't, and has never, factored into your definition of stalking. What Shaman did was stalking. So...why aren't you all over his case like you are anyone else you determine is stalking?
He got into positon to call..just like a good turkey hunter does..and he admitted to calling..One has to set up right?..Theres a difference and any good turkey hunter knows what it is...so pull your bull on someone else..
You pull your
bull elsewhere. He belly-crawled to get closer to the birds. Your
definition of stalking
