Thanks everyone for the welcomes and the tips. I'm hunting in Fairfield County SC on a property that's been leased from a logging company. We have a lot of cutover, but running through the middle of the property is a large creek that still has big standing roosting trees. The other side of the property is wooded heavily with "replacement" pines. I went scouting last weekend and heard four and saw one Tom. I was moving back to my truck when I saw the Tom on a powerline ridge a good 300 yards from me. He saw me first, but I could see his beard swinging through my binocs as he ran down the hill from me. Anyway, I saw a lot of turkey movement on the powerline side of the property during deer season (had a gobbler pack of 5 come by the stand one morning and hang out for about 30 minutes) and was excited when I heard them gobbling in the same area last weekend. I covered a lot of ground that scouting trip, but next weekend I'm going to sit in one spot with hopes to hearing some hens this time around.
The responses have been a TREMENDOUS help. One of the main reasons I asked was my fear about over calling. Thanks again and if anyone else has anything else to add, I'm all ears. The more I can learn the better. A buddy of mine (who now works for the NWTF) took me turkey hunting and got me my first jake. I've had the itch ever since!
