Once in a while you strike a lone tom that gobbles like hell at your every yelp, comes in on a string, and gets shot at 20 steps for his trouble. But these birds are pretty rare, especially in the Eastern hardwoods. Most gobblers you encounter now will be henned-up to some degree. You have a few choices when dealing with such a bird. Leave him to find a hot, solo tom. Stay home and wait for things to get better. Or go ahead and kill the sucker right now.
