**4. Use the Wind **
In open country, serious wind often comes with the territory, but don't worry about it here-the wind is your friend in expansive terrain. Unlike Eastern woodlands, where a hunter tends to rely more on hearing a turkey gobble than seeing it, exposed hillsides and prairies allow you to spot turkeys from far away and make a stalk. Wind covers the noise of your approach, so all you need to concern yourself with is using the contours of the terrain to avoid being seen. Stay low as you move, set up beneath a ridge near the gobbler and begin calling.
