Gobbling as I walked in so decided to set up a different place. Getting to it and he was on the ground sounding like he was going down another trail. Then he gobbled like going up perpendicular to it. Hopped out of the field into the apple orchard and yelped and gobbled and he came in within 5 min. 7 1/2" beard, 3/4" spurs. About 20# figure. Oh about 25 yards and 1 shot (just had to add the 1 shot).

If you have stupid ones there then shout out and I'll come down and edumicate them so you'll never be able to call one in again.

Apparently I don't have stupid ones.  I've jsut started turkey hunting.  Never went before about 5 years ago, and then it was (and really still isn't) very serious hunting.  I can somewhat call now, and on Saturday got my son and I into the right spot.  Let out a call and watched the one turkey that we'd seen all season turn tail and run away.  Or maybe you already edumicated them?

LOL. Message me if you at least want some help out there, trip down wouldn't be bad. I'm not a good caller but happened to be in the right spot both days was out. 2 gobblers shot at in a total of 35 min. time with a roll and a dead turkey.

Ha!  Funny stuff here.  We didn't get there until 6am, so thinking we were really late.  I opened up when I saw the bird at about 50 yards.  I think I was way too loud for what he was expecting, so think I scared him.  Going to give another try this weekend.  Going camping right after school on Friday and hunting Fri night then up and at it in the morning.  Told my son he can sleep in if he wants to and I'll wake him up for breakfast and then get at it again. 
Jon you are welcome to join us at any point if interested.  PM me if you are interested and I can get you directions.  East Brady area.  Probably getting to camp spot around 5 on Friday.

2 days I went out last week didn't leave here till 5:30 or so and close to 10 min. to get there. Then walk back in so I was after 6 both days, light enough that it was borderline through the scope but they both were just before 6:30 and saw both real good with eyes (and mine are REAL bad, remember I burn my nose when soldering?). First one was still on the roost and second think was just set to fly down. Volume I don't know about. This year was making it a point to call quieter. Guy I went out with before called so soft even though I was 10 yards away it was hard to hear but I don't call anywheres near that quiet. Sometimes before I move to another spot I'll yelp on the box call and cutt loud right over it with the diafram call and go back and forth for a few seconds then sit another 5-10 min. and then maybe with the mouth give real quiet yelps. Have shock gobbled them a few times doing the first part.
Maybe others will chime in. No means an expert here, only 6 longbeards and a few jakes over the years
Let me think about it, road trips are fun.

the two birds i killed this year all it took were two soft tree yelps and that was it.imo calling to birds on the roost less is more and being close is key.too much too quick makes them hang on the limb and wait for you.

I agree. Never used to do it but if they're on the roost just a few soft yelps and then shut up. They know you're there. Either at fly down they'll head your way or if have a specific place on their minds no amount of calling can change that (well in some cases).
