Much like tom turkeys, big herd bulls like to show off. At dawn, they’ll often stand in meadows, bugling in their harem to a nearby bedding site. Sneak in before first light and stake a decoy 10 to 15 yards into the opening, then retreat to just inside the dark timber. Get hidden, as the bull will have plenty of time to spot you as he crosses the clearing. You needn’t wait for him to bugle. Instead, start with some contented cow calls just before sunrise. Keep an eye on the meadow’s edge, as wary bulls may try to skirt your location.
