That said, on the public lands where I hunt, I've had very little luck making midday turkeys gobble with cutts and crow calls. Pressured birds shock-gobble sometimes, but I've had much better success in these hours when I drive and glass, or get out of the car to sneak and peek along field edges and clearings. Once you spot a bird, slip into position to call. If you're not seeing turkeys, go to a place you know they like and sit for an hour or two. Sitting isn't as much fun as covering ground and cutting loudly, but in areas with lots of birds, you'll often improve your chances by letting turkeys come to you instead of crashing through the woods trying to provoke a gobble.
