Tip of the Day: Bust the Roost for Henned-Up Gobblers

A gobbler that roosts with hens in the trees around him will be nearly impossible to call in next morning. One way to change the situation is to intentionally flush the birds off their roosts at the first crack of dawn, then follow in the direction they fly and set up short of where you think they landed. Persistent calling like a lost hen may then attract the gobbler to you before the real hens have a chance to regroup with him. -- Jerome B. Robinson
