Later in the season most of the hens are on a nest and the mature gobblers will come to your call much easier. Only the young birds will come early because the older birds keep their flock together. He won't leave 5-6 birds chasing after 1. Later when lonely he will.
That make a lot of sense and would explain why
in my experience calls only work for young male turkeys (Jakes), the mature birds (Toms) seem to ignore them but watch the Jake from a distance as he investigates.
as I hunt early in the season. I'm just itching to get out in the woods by the time spring gobbler opens here in PA, April 27-May 31, 2013.
