    That's how you know you're doing it right.
    Say "Pee, pee, pee" with your diaphram call.

    No sir. Young of the year 10 and 12 lbers look an awful lot alike, once you've seen a bunch of course.

    I've killed jakes and jennies that were all but identical at that age minus the start of a spur or a thumbnail of a beard. All depends on when they hit that first molt.

    Of course adult birds are distinguishable the way you described but we weren't talking adult birds we were talking young of the year birds.

    Triple, go where you have been seeing turkeys and sit down and just yelp occasionally or keowk (probably spelled that wrong) if you know how. Busting up birds definitely works, but turkeys are social and if you sound like one others will come to visit. 2 cents worth from someone to old to run and gun.

    They Ain't got watches..How much Time you got to wait?
    The lead hen feeds where their is food and no predators....

    That's what your up against..Every Stump is a Potential Predator...

    Hard to call em in against those odds..

    A good box call with hen sounds on one side Gobbler sounds on the other is invaluable in the Fall...

    Hooks Box calls or ML Lynch fool proof
    Box call...can't beat it in the fall.
    My Two Pennies..

    I learned Turkey hunting in the fall.
    Before I was allowed to hunt in the Spring..

    You learn every sound a Turkey makes..

    Most Turkey callers call to loud...

    Snowflake, I thought spending time in the woods was the point. Did not realize you needed an alarm to know when to go home. Tip: Go home when it isn't fun anymore. Really just before it gets to that point.

    You have no idea what I am. I said I "had" killed some. Back in the MO highpoint of turkeys you could have killed a dozen and it wouldn't have mattered. I haven't killed one in over 20 years.

    Your math and knowledge of turkey reproduction is horribly flawed. Not how it works.

    Plus, it isn't hard to tell a mature hen from a Jennie.

    Jackie, stick to squirrels. They seem to suit you better. Your two pennies on this topic are a lot more like wooden nickels.

    My Grandfather helped get the Turkey started back in Independence county Arkansas..
    He Took me out showed me what to look far..Sign ect..
    Taught me how to look for Roost trees.
    We set up a blind out of logs and sticks..
    Like Christmas I couldn't sleep..
    Got to my blind the next morning..
    Had lynch World Champion Box call....
    Purs..and clucks all I knew how to make..
    As the Red Birds started Chirping..
    I heard a lite Cluck..Tree cluck..close..
    They were all around me...
    One lite right in front of me..Clucking her head off..
    One by one all 20 flew down right in front of me..
    Had my savage 20 gauge #6 over and under 22 Lr with a Turkey sketched in the blueing..
    Picked out a Head..Pulled the Trigger..
    Turkey flopping..Turkey flying every Direction....
    Got to my Turkey I was proud..
    Set in my blind..Every one of those Turkeys came back within shotgun Range..
    But one was all I needed..
    I learned Turkey talk That has helped me to this Day..

    GOOD HUNTING...
