These Toms have a regular strutting area on an old growth hilltop with no underbrush. Too open to get in close and they hang up at 60yds.
This morning I set up in their zone and gave some light clucks to a roosted Tom. He dropped out of the tree, but didn't come in from the direction I thought (with 30-40yd shooting range.)
He popped up at 20yds on my right. When his head was behind a tree, I moved the barrel. He saw me and flew off.
I left the area without trying to get him back or look for him.

So, bottom line: Can I go back to this spot tomorrow or do turkeys remember when they have been startled and move to another location for a while?
I only have tomorrow and Sunday available left to hunt. \:\(

I don't know! At this point in my turkey hunting career I have came to the conclusion that I HATE turkeys and everything that they represent! \:D \:D

Based on what I've heard from others it's likely he'll come back if that's a spot they use regularely. No telling when though..

Go back. You'll never know unless you try again. IMO, each turkey is different. The ones I hunt tend to roost in same area no matter what.

That is my thought this morning.
At least deer are curious and will check you out or even come back to see what scared them.

x3. You sure won't know if you don't go and this late in the season you've got nothing to lose.
