That would be your in-experience showing Setterman. \:D \:D ;\)

\:D I agree, and I laughed for quite while about what my face must have looked like afterwards. Dang turkeys, even when you think you're winning you're still losing.

Watched my cousin call 3 across a pretty large creek. They flew down into the creek then walked up the bank. Bang flop!

my first gobbler last spring was one of 3 gobblers that was hammering on the other side of the river, while I was calling on my side of the bank against a dead tree. Turns out, there were hens on my side, and those boys wanted the hens. I watched em come right down to the edge of the water and then heard them fly across. They hammered for a while out of sight on a shelf down by the river level, while I was on top of the bank with my shotgun and camera on tripod. I wasn't taking video when a red and blue head popped up not 5 yards away, saw me, started to putt and went back down the bank. All of the turkeys... 3 gobblers and a few hens, went up the bank a little further down out of sight where I soon saw them going across the field, to another hunter who had set up a blind and decoys 350 yards away. The toms were strutting their way over there with the hens. Not much longer and I heard a shot. Peered around the bushes into the field and the birds were just standing around.... then they started coming my way. I was in the corner of the field by the river. I got ready and the first hen came by... then followed by a gobbler... boom flop, first long beard down. Got pics with the other hunter who was visiting from arkansas for the week to hunt the WMA. We carried our birds out together, it was an awesome hunt I will never forget.

I saw a gobbler come down a steep mountain from at least a mile away.
