Changing the Setup While Working a Gobbler [VIDEO]

Hung-up gobblers can be maddening. They gobble to your calls, yet won’t approach that last 25 yards to offer a shot. Matt Wettish hosted young Noah Kagel on his first turkey hunt and a pair of monster longbeards gobbled their heads off just over a rise. When the birds began to move on, the savvy Wettish relocated 50 yards away and began to call. Often a slight change in position adds realism to a hen call or eliminates some physical element (log, fence, stream, etc.) that a gobbler won’t cross. In their new position, Wettish threw his most alluring calls and results weren’t long in the making. This is an entertaining and informative skill that can really pay off. Watch the action below.
