The answer? Options follow:
Get tight to his roost tree well before sunrise. Call softly with a no-hands mouth call, if at all, right after he flies down and hits the ground. Clucks and soft yelps may do the trick.
SIT AND WAIT
Better yet, if you can nail the hang-up strut zone one day, he might just come to the location the next one, and you’ll be waiting.
FAKE HIM OUT
Decoys may or may not pull him in. If he gobbles, and those hen fakes aren't in his location, well then you’re back in a stalemate. Maybe he'll come; maybe not.
You may just choose to hang out in that area, hoping he crosses your path. Read the land. Pattern the gobbler. For the guy who likes to get a longbeard fired up and bring him in to the calls that may or may not be a hollow victory.
CALL LIKE ONE
You can also call like a gobbler (make coarse yelps, roughly three notes long, or gobble, safety considered). During this late transition time gobblers may just want to run with other toms and jakes.
As this goes, you may even want to find a legal shortbeard somewhere, and fill that tag for the backyard grill. Or not.
Turkey hunting is often challenging, especially late in the game. Enjoy it all. Filling your tag is a bonus.
