After fly-down time, walk quietly, looking, listening, and occasionally yelping. If you don't strike birds in your travels, you may hear them walking. Turkeys make even more noise plodding through the fall leaves than we do. If you hunt near a reservoir, a good method of spotting turkeys is to cruise the shoreline in a boat, watching for birds in the strip of land between woods and water. Once you locate turkeys, ease ahead of their direction of travel and begin yelping. When birds answer aggressively, mimic their calls. Be insistent; aggravate them sufficiently, and they'll come bustling in to run you off. If the birds aren't in a fighting mood, be patient and call softly as they feed their way toward you.
