What would it be? I see alot of new guys to the sport asking for tips. I for certain am not an expert but I have killed a few birds and could always use more tips.What is your tip for us?
My tip would be always use the terrain in your favor when you set up on a bird. Make sure as best you can that he cannot see your calling location uless he is within gun range. A gobbler is useally reluctant to approach a hen that he cant see that he thinks he should.

Where ever you decide to set up, stay 30 minutes more than your mind tells you to. I've been busted a couple of times by telling myself this spot ain't working.

Get as close as you can with out spooking them, before you call.

There are all kinds of tips for different circumstances but overall I think Ruger nailed it. Don't be afraid to move but patience has probably killed more birds than not. A tip someone might not have considered relates to very windy days. I've hunted, called in, and killed birds under extremely windy circumstances before. So windy in fact, that I could plainly see the bird come out of the timber and into a field downwind of me, watch as he strutted and gobbled his head off, but couldn't hear a thing. The tip would be that when calling under those circumstances do so from upwind of where you anticipate the birds being.

Patience is the key.
