Is there a possibility that he could see you when you set up?

No, there was too many leaves on the trees and I was in way before it started breaking day.

I chased three mature gobblers for an entire season one year. I had nicked name the three gobblers the “Three Amigos”. I have posted a picture below of three birds. Opening morning I called them in across a pasture and took a shot and missed, I was sitting off the pasture in some thick brush and when I shot I did not see a large vine hanging down and hit the vine square and missed the gobbler. From that time on would call and the Three Amigos would by at the opposite end of the field. They would gobble in response to my calling but would never come close for a shot. Everyday I would move to where they were the day before. This went on for the entire season. The last day of the season I set up a pop-up blind in the middle of the pasture where I birds would routinely hang out. It was not a set that I would ever consider in normal turkey hunting. That last morning I called the Amigos up in the middle of the pasture and I was able to kill the largest of the three. In this case and unorthodox tactic worked to kill one of the Amigos.
