I would put up about 3 blinds and sit it out. Once they become territorial they will attack a jake decoy if you put one out.

A blind in the shape and color of a big fat heffer would work great. \:\)

You'd be amazed just what kind of cover you can find in a wide open field. I've got a spot similar to your pics above and I can get into a tiny sinkhole (4x4 ft, approx 20" deep) in the middle of the field where the birds want to pitch to in the mornings. Killed several gobblers 1-5 minutes after flydown at that spot.

The key to hunting in the middle of wide open fields is to get set up WELL before daylight. Essentially, you've got to commit to the spot even before the birds start gobbling in the morning, because if you wait to confirm their location, it'll be too light to make it through the field without them spotting you from the trees.

This is going to be fun. I went back this morning to get a game plan together. Took a lot of pics but was a sorry photographer today. Had gobblers with hens come in from 3 different directions. had 7 LBs and maybe as many as 20 jakes. There were strutting turkeys scattered for 200 yards. Good thing is that there are 2 longbeards making it to the fields first that are subordinates. They will be our best chance for a double. If we don't kill we will sure have frustrating fun trying. Good luck to all and happy hunting.
