I've been hunting my property on Palomar (pretty much my backyard) for the last several days just to have birds hang up, or just quit gobbling and go the other direction. This morning I had a lone hen come in and hang out for about an hour or so...heard no gobbling at all. Called it a day and hung out with the kids. Around 3:30 I hear gobbling down the hill. I quickly get my gun and sneak into position. Two jakes were coming in, I just sat and waited as the bigger of the two walked about 20 yards in front of me...woo-hoo my first turkey ever! Gonna keep at it, I've seen a nice big tom around here too!

    Congrats on your first one. Try and stop calling once you know
    he's interested. A couple of yelps is all it takes. Curiosity will get the best of him and he will come looking most of the time. Beleive me he knows where the yelps came from after the first call.

    good work. In Palomar this week, and saw quite a few toms on private property. We called every bird we saw...nearly all gobbled back. Hopefully, you can get the nice tom before the closer.
