Here is what i do. about a week before season opens i go out and start shouting to see what kind of birds i have i my area. then the night before opening morn. i go out with a owl call to find where their are for the next morn. once i located them that morn. i go out about a hour before lite and set up. i put my decoys about 20-25 yards away from me with the jake decoy closest to me and the hen behind it. that way when the bird comes in they will go to the jake first to run him off. when he does that it puts him about 18-20 yards from you. after you set up and the birds start to wake up do a little of soft calls once the gobbler answers stop callin then once that you know that their on the ground then do some aggresive calls but don't over call. but the #1 thing is patience. there is also a good vid that you might want to check out "so you want to be a turkey hunter" by h.s. if you need any more info let me know. good luck huntin'
