Default Got some sharp birds. Need some thoughts.

There's two birds out on a farm I hunt and they have gotten sharp as a tack. They will gobble at everything but my call, I'm dumbfounded as I have never seen this. I've been using a Woodhaven and on opening day I called them both in but they got locked up on the other side of a fence and ever since then they have just got down right tough to kill. There's no predicting where they will be so still hunting is kind of tough of a couple hundred acre farm. Got any ideas or tips? I want revenge on these butt whooping turkeys.

If you have called to much they may simply be call shy. Use a different call and change your cadence. And as has been said if you have them safely on your property give them a day off and scout them very carefully.

Sometimes they just don't gobble, I've had a turkey gobble once and than just shut up. Called for a little while, about a half hour after the one gobble hes standing 30 yards away.
surprised me a little but I got it. it was just a little Jake but its a good example.

One tip I can give you is to set up 20-80 yards behind your original set up to sound like the hen has lost interest and is walking away. 7 out of 10 times that works for me.
and sometimes it helps if you just move 20 yards at a time.
