Had two talk in roost five times , then shut up, but upon leaving found that there were at least three other hunters that had entered the same area even with our two cars parked in separate spots, and we were in woods at 4:30, Dad and I figure one of hunters prob heard birds and got busted moving in on us. Was very odd never had turkeys stop talkin that quick unless busted and it sure as shi$ was not us that busted em
Good luck all tomorrow is another day in the hills

Yes, that sounds sweet! I have a few of Ronís calls and they sound amazing. Find a spot on the call, prep surfaces, and play with different angles and pressure on the striker. Listen to the hens, repeat the same cadence they do, I always listen to exactly what the hens do. Good luck to all !

DXT exactly I often play with a slate or any pot call surface and usually take a sharpie and mark my sweet spots on the outside of the surface so I know exactly where I want to go if I Need to use it quickly right out of my vest
