First off, forget the Dead Down Wind, as they won't be bothered by your smell. My favorite way to hunt fall turkeys is to scatter them as they fly up to roost (shooting a few times helps with the scatter) then get there the next day before daybreak and call them back. As said above, it is better to scatter them than to scare them all off in the same direction. This is one of the reasons I like to scatter them at fly-up time, as it is easier to get in among them if at least some of them are already in the treetops. I have just done this with groups of hens and their same-year offspring, but I think the tactic is sound for gobbler groups, the difference being that fall gobblers are harder to call because they are less eager to regroup than family groups.
