'at'd be my view 2,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,if ya can't make him come in ,at least make him mad . I see the pecking order as a weakness in most birds during the fall season . Might be a very ,very slight weakness , but a weakness all the same. As I have said before , turkeys in any locale KNOW the voices or calls of every resident bird . Sometimes the call of an intruder is what's needed to make the hackles stand up and make 'em come stomping in mad and spoilin' for a scrap.

Mark, That is one of the most exciting sounds in the fall.  When you hear that, you know your in the game.
I have to wait only 133 more days for the first day of fall season in Penna.

Does Linda answer when you call? If she does your on to something with that new trumpet.  If she is burried in the computer then keep practicing until she comes into your room.[:D]

That's when you got right.  I get the same here at times.  I try mostly to run my calls in the car to and from work as not have that look.  Anyway Mark, they are great ladies to put up with our toys and hobbies.

Da' Gummit ! I can go for several days without too much problem of anxiousness for the fall season . Then out of the blue I'll see something that reminds me of a specific hunt or time in the woods and the craving to be standing in big timber that's skirted by a thicket or a huge grove of cedars , waiting on sunup comes over me  . Ears straining for any slight sound of a gobbler on the limb . Having the call at the ready . Reminding myself of the how the hills lay , and where the gulleys are . Eyes scanning the tree tops as one hand grips the double and the other a call. Breathing through my mouth so I'm able to hear a little better .
 Will they be vocal ? Will I be able to ''Strike up some talk''?
 
 We'll have to wait'n'see,,,,,,DA' GUMMIT!
