On private land a few weeks ago, there was a bird gobbling in a hollow. I was on the land I could hunt on one ridge, and there was a guy on the opposite ridge blowing his lungs out on a crow call.

The thing is that the bird was responding to him :rolleyes: ! Any "normal" turkey hunter would have made a move and started calling. Not this guy. Honestly for 20 minutes, I bet he blew that thing 200 times. Not sure what he was trying to do. The only "possible" explanation I could come up with was maybe he had a buddy who was trying to slip in and bushwhack it while he kept it gobbling.

Of course, it hushed after a bit.

Great responses guys. I chuckled at several of them. I too, have heard hens that sounded HORRIBLE and thought to myself, that guy is the worst caller I ever heard. Only to see a hen walk by a few minutes later.

Owls on the other hand, I RARELY mistake for a hunter, and visa-versa. And crow calls, WHEW!!! I don't think I have ever heard a caller who sounded even remotely real.

I understand now Captain, thanks for clearing that up.
