Your posts on calling, call types, and the applications of specific calls always blow me away with their practicality and the wealth of info they provide. . Someone should compile all your calling tip posts on here into a book (If Dewey hasn't done it already).

If he starts to angle then give him a couple quick short yelps, that tells that bird he's going the wrong way and needs to get back in the direction he was coming. If the bird is within 70 yards then just cluck and purr, or whines or keeyelps, scratching the leaves, so he knows that your still there even though he can't see you. Learn what calls to give him to close the deal, if all your doing is yelping at that bird, that tells hin your a hunter and not a hen. Real birds don't yelp to a gobbler coming towards them that they can see, they get excited and will call faster and short little calls in a high pitched sound. If your hunting high preasured birds, "It's Very Important" that you learn what calls to give them, how much calling you give them and most important the volume your calling with, if that bird is 50 yards or less and you can hear your calls your too loud, call very softly!!! If that bird turns to leave, that's when you blast him with volume and fast yelps, or a short series of cutts, that tells him "Where You Going I'm Over Here. Learn to control the volume of your calls...
