when you have a big fine tom strutting, in range, gobbling his snood off, and there's a property line between him and you.


I swear that bird understands what a property line is. Wouldn't budge one step closer than 20 yards to it. And I think he was sticking his tongue out at me.

Skeeeeeter, So far this season you've had birds begging you to give them a ride home. Of course one of them is going to figure out that your the guy to be very afraid of. Keep at it and I bet he finds his way into the bed of your truck before too long...

My favorites are the ones that fly down into the middle of a big field and won't budge till the hens come and lead them the other direction

Barbed wire has led to many of my defeats while deer and turkey hunting. Cursed invention.

Or when you have three nice birds running toward you and the next thing you see is another hunter running towards the birds you are calling. On top of that try that twice in one day. (it happened today no joke. One guy looked like he was going on a elk hunt in the rockies)

or when the company that you just purchased your brand new blind from swears that you can shoot your arrows through the window camo fabric without any problems...

so you try it out in the field on that perfect tom and it isn't true...

Or when you're at Spenceville and you're calling a nice Gobbler from over 100 yards and he's closing the distance only to have a hunter sneak between the two of you and BAM! So much for your bird.

yeah I had the exact same thing going on. I would call and I would get a gobble from the property across the road. This went on for about 45 minutes and the Tom never came to me. I am pretty new to this so I was actually just kind of stoked to get the conversation going. Hopefully in the next couple of weeks he will feel the need to come on over to my side of the fence.

I have seen turkeys go under barbed wire fences and I have seen turkeys fly over barbed wire fences. I think they would be hesitant to cross over if there were some hens on his side ( a bird in the hand worth two in the bush kind of thing), or he had felt too much preasure (excessive calling by multiple hunters) on your side of the fence. Try later in the seaon when most the hens have gone to roost and the Gobblers are desperately seaching for any remaining hens.
