It’s pretty simple on paper: Get between the dominant gobbler and hens and you can sometimes close the deal.

In this kind of situation, you need to rise earlier than ever, and slip into the woods toward roosted turkeys that you’ve located. You should know the number of hens and gobblers in the group if possible. You should know where they like to fly down before gathering and moving off. You should know where they are positioned the evening before the morning you hunt them.

Then get in tight, between the dominant spring gobbler and the hens, and let the show begin.

Sometimes you can time it so that you hear him gobble early—especially if the light is just coming on in the morning. If so, slowly rise, and ease in his direction, knowing you might be walking right past a hen or two.

Use terrain if it helps your approach, then sit tight: quietly waiting for the woods to wake up.
