2 A gobbler answers every call you make, but he won't come any closer to you.
Either there's an obstacle between you and the tom that he will not cross, or he's in an open field or on the top of a ridge from which he can see a long way. If it's the latter, be patient, lessen your calling and you may get him to come in to you in an hour or two. Don't get closer to him; if you've set up properly, you're as close as you need to be. However, if there's a fence or stream between you, you'll have to move to the other side of it. Once the obstacle is out of his way, the tom should come in.
