1. Late season gobblers can be lukewarm. In my opinion they are less likely to cover great distances or obstacles to get to you.
If you cannot set-up on his roost, I have another suggestion.
Maybe you can put yourself in a good position to follow him once he comes down. This means staying well concealed, moving in the shadows and using locater calls to keep him talking. Eventually you might be able to slip into his inner circle and start calling softly.
NOTE: I trust that you will use extreme caution and maintain situational awareness, Deano. To any new hunters (or seasoned ones for that matter), moving on a vocal turkey can attract other hunters. Every move you make must be done with an eye for danger. If there is even the slightest hint that you and another hunter are sharing the same area BACK OFF!
Ah, the S-word.
Let me just say that you are 100% correct in NOT following my advice above. Not only because of NJ law but because of your own assessment of the safety situation in the area you hunt.
I think i'll quit there.
