7 feet. I sat up in a little patch of honey suckle looking down a logging road where a bird was gobbling. Well of course they got behind me (it turned out to be two of them), gobbled 10 yards away 180 degrees from my gun barrel and came back into the logging road on the wrong side. The afore mentioned honey suckle had me blocked, so i had to wait until they cleared it, at which point i could see steam coming out of there beaks when they breathed.

8 yards for me.

On one occasion i was calling for someone and wasnt carrying a gun, i was setup probably 50 yards behind him with the bird in front of us. The bird eventually worked all the way around behind me and walked to within touching distance beside me and belted out 3 gobbles. I thought my ear drums were going to bust.

Probably 15 - 20 yards on one I killed a couple of years back on a foggy morning with drizzling rain. He had some jakes with him and they came by so close I could have hit them with my gun barrel. He was close too but I couldn't move. The jakes putted and he turned and started to trot off but wasn't quick enough.

11 steps. Way too close for comfort IMO. Missed one last year about 6 or 7 steps.
