So this morning was awesome. We heard 7 different gobblers and they were coming closer. Next thing you know they sounded like they were down in the neighbors field. 20 minutes after they got down there, they went silent. Haven’t heard a gobble since 7. Anyone know what to do now? I also haven’t heard any other shots.

If you are where you have been seeing them have patience they will come. It is usually hard to run and gun with a youth.

The fellas found the real thing and will follow them around for awhile. Later in the morning they will seek other hens and your calling will get them coming your way. Might be noon or a bit after so don't give up to soon.

Stay put and softly call every 25/30 mins. Don't over call. Just a few soft yelps the first couple of times waiting 25/30 mins before you yelp at them again. If your unsuccessful or don't hear a gobble back at your location after you have attempted a couple calls.... on the third attempt you might try a higher pitched call or an excited "fly down cackle" type of call to get them to "shock" call back at you. Your just letting them know your still there .. Believe me.. they know exactly where you are.. they are just wanting you to come to them.... Keep on the lookout... a lot of times they might not gobble again and come in to your set-up on the quiet. Or you might actually have an entirely different bird come in to your location. The key is staying put and not overcalling. By over calling your giving out way too much information to your target. Why should your target come to you when he already has some ladies with him and he already knows exactly where your at every 3-4 mins due to over calling..

Stay at it and wait them out !
