you got what they call a "conundrum". lol

here's a couple of things you might do:

1. setup between where they roost and the field on your property, and hope they flydown before they get to you and not directly to the field.

2. get permission to hunt the field.

3. find where they are crossing the fence line onto your property and ambush them there.

4. ambush them in the evening where you saw them on the ridge.

if you cant get permission to hunt the field them try #1. get there well before daylight and get 50 to 75 yards from the gobblers roost, set out your decoys and wait. when you hear him sound off start purr and cluck sequence. you might just have a shot.

i had the same problem last year, had that first gobbler sneak in on me. i had my decoys 3 ft from a 3 strand barb wire fence. he would not come under that fence, he went back up the hill and i let out with some excited cuts. he and 3 hens came running down the hill. the hens crossed under the fence, the gobbler was reluctant but finally stuck his head under. i dropped him right there on my side. so sometimes they do cross and sometimes they dont, it all depends on the mood of the bird.

thats good addvice WTM. But the roost is on their property too so I either have to get permission or call them all the way across the feild to me. Or i could hope they keep coming up the ridge on the way to their roost and ambush them there. Its a small feild. About 1/2 an acre.

a gobbling turkey will make a law abiding hunter trespass ,, so i would go ask the neighbor if you could hunt , being only 14 might help and also could hurt , you will need to insure him that you are a safe hunter. and so on and so forth , sounds like you found um ,, good luck
