Hi guys,
Joe with a bow...zippo! I just finished a hard week of hunting. I got fogged (and sleeted too) one day on the eastern side of Mauna Kea, and Sunday am some guys took rifles (for feral sheep) into the archery area where I was hunting....bang X 5, and the whole hillside shutdown and the three gobblers I could hear shutup and bugged out. Even the guides on Parker Ranch had a hard time getting clients on birds.

Go get'em!

Hey guys, got a question. What is your solution to a turkey that continually hangs up just out of range and will not come any closer. Thee is nothing preventing him from getting closer, i.e.. fences or creeks. He is a tough old bird. I have tried excited calling, have tried shuting up, have tried decoys. Cannot move back and away from the bird to give him a feeling of I'm leaving. Any ideas?

I've used a short fightin' purr to make them come in and look. Even smart ole toms like a good hen fight. I've also shut up completely and made him come looking for me with no decoys out.

He is gobbling going from side to side. I have tried the hen fight and shutting up but he is waiting for the hens to come to him.

yeah... i was going to ask you the same thing.. is it the same setup everytime? if so, can you get around and try to call him in from another area? shake it up a bit?

Set up where he hangs up if you can - - change calls and calling sequence.

Have you tried a struting decoy such as a B-Mobile?
