If you could ever get between the hens and the LB you will score.

Trying to learn how to do that myself. lol

When the hens start laying in about 10 more days, just sleep in and go around 10:00. Lay low and move slowly and use some hard cutts. He will answer, he will be alone, you will kill him.

pattern them and be where they want to go. a couple of runs of hard cuttin along with a decoy or two can draw the lead hen to you, along with the rest of the flock. she can be about as territorial as a gobbler.

Get in front of them then, by making a huge circle. Don`t get caught at all. Pick out a hen to start calling to and start cutting her off every time you hear her. Be louder than her and call a bit more often. She might come over and bring the rest with her, wear leafy cut camo head to toe. You better be sitting perfect cause you`ll get busted real quick with all the company. Leave the decoys home. Some hens will lead a gobbler away from competition. Save them for a later try.

Well I sorta had the same deal today and I had a creek that aforded me conceilment till I was right beside the hens and just behind the gobler.The hens where sounding off so I did too . all the hens and gobler flew down and entered the field in front of me .but the greedy gobler would not leave without me .he strutted around about 60 yards out forever it seemed like. He finally got in the lane I had pick out for him and I blasted him away. I would say it depends on youre situation. If you have him roosted and you can slip in between or with the other hens without being busted I would do that .Alot of poeple will say don't called to them on the roost ,but if the other hens are then I will ,to let him know were all his girls are,There is no way that bird this morning would have stuck around and waited for me if I had not called to him and let him think he had another girl comming.good luck!!!

I've flushed them off the roost in the evening when I could go back the next day. The gobbler would gooble a couple times on the roost and once or twice when they flew down, but he was roosting with the hens. This went on for a couple of days, so the third day they flew up in the same spot, I walked through with a flashlight. Bird nearly choked himself gobbling the next morning. He was about 150 yards away and seperated from his hens.

thats some good advice. ive killed two gobblers by calling to the hen more so then i was calling to the gobbler. if you can get the hen to answer try to cut her off in the middle of her call and it will piss her off and she will come in on a string most of the time. a good jake and hen decoy can do wonders sometimes to. \:\)
