If a bird is still in the tree, let him know your there(call very lightly) and shut up. Don't call again until he is on the ground.

Definitely.

Don't get so caught up in the killing...enjoy the hunt for what it is.

Amen. My first two or three years of turkey hunting was all about numbers and spurs. They were the worst years I've ever had- always worrying about 'getting one' rather than enjoying the hunt.

Now, not that I am some expert, I can (and have) let birds walk that I was fortunate enough to call into range. I'm a 'birder'. Spring is prime migration for warblers and there have been many days that I left a farm without a turkey but having seen a couple of neat birds simply because I was out there.

I would highly suggest an Eastern Bird field guide in everyones pack.

Don't cackle, cutt, or call too much while they are still in the tree.

Buy quality calls. It's kinda like buying shoes. The cheap ones will get it done, but the higher quality ones will last longer and are much more enjoyable to use.

I never call to a bird in the tree.....I always wait till he hits the ground.

I think this applies more to situations when you are blind calling. If you are working a bird you may need to move several different times within a short time frame.
