After the flock is split, set up and call the lonely birds back in. In the right circumstances this tactic is a good way to get a gobbler away from his harem. When a tom has plenty of female company, enticing him to come to a call is an iffy proposition. A longbeard might gobble vociferously, but his message is essentially: "The party's over here, come and join us." If you send his harem flying to every point of the compass, however, you greatly increase your odds of calling him in. Once the gobbler recovers from his initial fright, he soon discovers that solitude is anything but splendid.
