Here's another CZ 28 gauge turkey from a couple years ago.

As gobbling time came and went, nothing. So, I decided to go down to the corner of a field near a creek and see if I could jerk a gobble out of something there. And sure enough, one gobbled about 80 yds away off the corner of the field. So, I slipped inside the woods and sat down. To make a long story short, I never got one to respond, and after a while I got the feeling they were gone. So I eased up to where I could see out in the field, and sure enough there was a fan out in the high grass 100 yds away. I called softly to see the reaction, and a second white head popped up. Then the strutter turned and started going directly away from me. At that point I knew there were two toms, and that they were following a crotchety hen. So, I swung around and called a little more for little while, but they vanished.

At this point I went down to the opposite end of the field to walk back on the road. And sure enough, there were their freshly made tracks. The hen had pulled them clear opposite of wherever I was calling from. So I followed the tracks down the road, and started calling. And one answered me. So, I got in the woods and made haste to cut the distance, calling as I came. And they both started gobbling at me. When I got close enough, I sat down and tried to draw them into the woods to me. The turned around and came back towards me, but were hesitant to come into the woods. It took about 15 minutes to get them to work down the road (the hen had disappeared by now) about 30 yds to where I had a good shot 35 or so yards away. The 2nd bird took off flying at the shot, and came right over my head in the pines -- it's a good thing for him that he lives in NC instead of GA or SC....
