On this particular hunt, Charlie was calling for Vin Sparano, former Editor-in-Chief of Outdoor Life. They sat on a hillside, calling to no bird in particular. In fact, they hadn't heard a gobble since sunrise, but Charlie continued to sit, and call, and sit some more. As Vin described it, Charlie would reach into his jacket pocket, pull out an old box call, slip off the two rubber bands that were wound around it and issue forth exactly six hen yelps. That done, Charlie would put the bands back on, put the call in his pocket and wait. Twenty minutes later, Charlie repeated the exact process, step for step, and again waited 20 minutes. Vin was thinking that perhaps the 80-year-old man was losing it, but out of respect, he sat with him and waited. This went on for three hours, and Vin was sure it was a colossal waste of time. He was more than ready to head back to camp or at least to another spot. Suddenly a turkey gobbled so close it startled both of them. The bird walked into range and Vin handily dispatched it. That was a classic example of having patience and the confidence that something will happen.
