everyone who has hunted turkeys has come across a bird that gets hung up rather its a creek a fallen log or just a bush in a wrong spot. but whats the craziest thing you have called a bird across that you thought would hang him up. Last year i called three birds in that should have hung up. opening day of ms season i called two gobblers across a creek with 3 hens at 5 in the afternoon and killed the strutter, in missouri called three gobs across a river mid morning, killed the strutter, and 2 days later in kansas called one across 2 barb wire fences and a gravel road my buddy killed. great year killed several birds but i know this year i will come across a bird that wont come in and i will get frustrated and hunt him for days before i bump him or kill him. But i cant wait

I've called them across creeks, and a river. i even called them across a road. One thing i haven't been able to do is to get one to comee across a fence. Seems like the fence gets me everytime.

A river, a road/fence. Doubled up with a buddy last season in which one of the birds came straight through a fresh blow over, after the other strutted around it

Called one across 2 acres of swamp. He flew down to an island dry spot and gobbled his brains out. I tried calling soft and waiting him out, but after a solid hour of gobbling in the same spot i changed tactics. I paced back and forth about 30 yards along the edge cutting and yelping. He gobbled and i gobbled back at him. He double gobbled twice and got quiet. I sat down and about 5 minutes of silence later i heard wing beats and he landed right in front of me. Never been so surprised to see a turkey.

I called one a few years ago across Norris Lake on a chuck swan hunt. Bird was gobbling on the other side, I was bored and just kept making him gobble. After about 10 minutes I see something sailing towards me, and he lands 20 yards away. I was totally unprepared got busted and never had a chance to kill him.

I've had one coast across a valley before,after he was on the ground. Got busted shortly after he landed. Definitely caught me off guard.

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

Had some in another field that was divided by a small creek and tree line. Figured they wouldn't come and next thing I know here they come flying over one by one.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
