My dad suggested setting up on the edge of the woods and using a lone hen decoy and see if we cant get him to commit. I thought about trying a strutter and a lone hen to see if that would get him mad enough to come across. Then again we still have two weeks so maybe they will start roosting on my side!

I am thinking your dad's suggestion maybe a pretty good one.. Then if the Toms do not want to cross the hens may and the toms will soon be following the hens..

the day before season opens, get on the property you can hunt and call, call a lot, make a lot of hen noise, they should be on your side the next morning.

Never thought about that! Interesting idea would like to know how it works out if you choose to try it

I would go in while they are gobbleing in the morn, make sure they hear you call, then once they settle down get in there and do a lot of calling. stay on them they'll cross the road sometime.
