Called it by voice even. That is impressive to me. I have a cousin that can do that. I've tried to sound like a turkey with my voice, can't do it. I sound like a turkey that has something wrong with it at best. And that's being generous. I'm so bad at sounding like a turkey I just quit doing it.

Nice bird, they can be hard to kill. I have been calling them since I was about 14 or 15, I called in a lot of birds, but did not shoot my first bird, till I was around 33. I can call them in, used to call too many in too fast, then have multiple birds on multiple sides, and get busted every time.

I don't sound much like a turkey, imo, but this bird came 200 yards.

Nice bird! Wish we had more around my place. I love calling them into shotgun range but have the rifle too if they don't want to play

I called some in before by voice. Just said here turkey turkey turkey. The trick is you gotta do it right when the feeder is going off. For some reason, if I call by voice any other time it never works.

You know, I have a dozen or so pics of a nice flock at one feeder in particular, but never see them there when I'm hunting.
