Silence is Golden

“Silence is golden”- I have heard this saying all my life.  But to a turkey hunter it’s their worst nightmare.  I was always told, it’s hard to kill a turkey if he’s not gobbling.   This season the turkeys in my woods would gobble on the roost, then fly down and get with the hens and strut.  When they have real hens with them, it is very difficult to call all of them to me or the old gobbler himself.  Seems like this year was extremely challenging, because both turkeys that I harvested were shot in the evening.  I did a lot more stalking than calling this year.  Only calling when I had a great position for a shot.  One thing that I have learned over the years is to adapt my strategy to what the turkeys are doing.  Good luck!
