** Shoulders and Shotguns**
If you can, pick a spot with a few big trees out front. Then, when the bird walks behind one of them, you'll be able to make that last little bit of movement to get your gun in position. Before you sit, look around and establish range markers-rocks, trees, bushes-that you can use to determine when the turkey is in range. I find it's easier to estimate range accurately while I'm standing up; everything looks farther away once I sit down. Sit with your off shoulder (the left for right-handed shooters) facing the direction you think the bird will approach. Putting yourself at a slight angle to the turkey allows you to comfortably move the gun in a wider arc to the right and the left. Finally, if you're hunting with someone, make sure the shooter and the caller are together, and their eyes are at the same level. That way, both hunters have identical views, forestalling those hushed, frantic conversations that run: "Shoot him!" "I can't see him!" "He's right there!" "Where?" and so on, until the turkey wanders away.
