I admit I'm a little reluctant to even post ,Dean. Reason being , you have been given a whole bunch of tips and advice from so many , and this being your ''LAST SHOT'' effort of the season , it's possible you could trip a breaker or just flat out short circuit , as you strain to recall every bit of info ,,,remember how things went on previous hunts ,,,, all the while kicking yourself over mistakes made .
I agree totally with JP &Scott.
This post reminds me of my own mistake ,,,on the last afternoon of the season . The gobbler walked back 'n' forth gobbling at a steady pace . I know he heard my faint calls . He wouldn't come .
Then as I moved unseen , covered by a wall of super thick brush , he heard my slow and deliberate steps in the 12 inch grass. It drove him nuts . Now it eats at me because I didn't sit him out even though it was raining .
As I've said before ,,,,Turkeys hear other turkeys leaf scratching , and walking nearly every day ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,there are days when they don't hear vocalizations . It's a deadly call ,,,if ya don't get busted in motion.
Dean , you made some good hunts this season ,,,,,and your progression as a turkey hunter , in two seasons , far outshines my first 5 seasons .
Best wishes on the ''LAST SHOT''.
