Ground blind on the edge of a field or near a roosting area. Otherwise they will see you draw.

What DM said, but I also found that a strutting decoy helps to bring the gobblers in to close range and to keep them distracted once they are in range. No matter what you do, it is going to be difficult though. Good luck!

Best advice I can give ya amigo, is:

If it's turkeys you're after, throw them sticks down and grab your shotgun or small rifle! Them thangs (sticks AND birds) is REAL frustrating!
I've killed turkeys with a bow, but I've lost more than I've collected, so I quit the archery/turkey foolishness!!
The birds deserve much more respect than ME slinging sticks at them with a bow!!! LOL!!!

I honestly feel that a big tom turkey is much more difficult to come by than ANY wall hanger buck!!!

turkeys are hard enough with a shotgun. if your not in a ground blind your going to have an extremely hard time. just make sure your in a blind and you should be ok.
