Okay guys lets hear it! I tried for years and always get them to call back but never come in so looking for advice. I will list how i usually do it below. 1) Public land, pines, thick timer, small gas line fields throughout the timber, rolling hills. AKA Mohican state forest. I start off usually a week before season and drive around just before dark or right at sunup and crow call or owl hoot and if i get a response and in past years its been 2-3 responses i will mark it on the map and come back in the AM. We park and quietly get out and head into the woods to usually a pre determined location watching old gas line road, logging roads or openings in the woods and once the sun starts to crack i give a series of yelps about 6-8 on the Primos laminate box call or cheapo pot call and 99% of the time i get a response or two and then i try and move a little closer and sit down with a thick tree or dead fall. If i get a response i wait about 5min and give a soft yelp or 2-3 almost just dragging the top of the call along the box on the call and get a little more aggressive with it and sit and wait another 10-15min and sometimes with that second call sequence i get an answer and sometimes its no answer after the very first answer. I'm not real sure on how to putt, purr, etc so i keep it simple with yelps. I heard a guy or two over the years do very soft sounds like a pur, pur, pur then yelp, yelp, yelp and then like a yip,yip,yip, yip with the box call at the end and get responses and i have gotten responses also. IDK if i'm calling too much, not the right sounds, not the right habitat, etc? 5yrs ago the last time i went there was a private hay field with a couple clear cuts in the woods and an old atv path and ferns and oaks all over the place and we got there late so i crow called and got a response so ran in and setup and got one more response and nothing so upon leaving i see a balloon i wanted to take out with me and walked into a hen on a nest of 3 eggs and busted more hens out of the area. 2) Do you hunt the small valleys or up on the hills? 3) When do you start calling and how often and what sounds? 4) Should i buy a better call than the Primos laminate and cheap HS strut pot calls? 5) Say you get a response 10min after sunup and you wait 20min to call again and no response should i move to say another side of the road or pack up and head somewhere completely different? The problem with Mohican is there are smaller parcels of private intersecting the public so a bird could be across the road on private gobbling and your on the other side. Is that a wash and just move on?
