I step out on my back porch right before dark, and shout "HEY" real loud a few times.

They will gobble from their roosts, and that helps me know here I want to go the next morning.

Turkeys can be like women they can be fickle. We need to know the range of the birds as they travel around.

Look for their tracks in the mud and the sratchings and the crap if its hooked its a tom. Look on the trees for the roast sites and try to listen late and early in the day.

You don't even have to walk around all you do is educate the birds or push them unnaturally.

Since your only hunting a tom in spring then all you need to know is where the toms are and have as many located as you can find or hear. Listening is your key not really boots on the ground.

You need to know your bush so when you go in you don't bump the birds or when you want to call him in where he will come to you from and position around on him so you don't spook him.
