When situations seem ideal for a walk—in a large wildlife area or timber-studded ridge, for example—I proceed with a bit more caution than I did 10 or 15 years ago. I walk as quietly as possible, constantly scanning the woods for movement and listening for turkeys. Also, I go fairly slowly, stopping often to glass for a while or to run several calling sequences. My pace isn’t as slow as when I’m still-hunting for deer, but it’s close. Impatience bumps toms. I still follow the conventional cutt-and-run advice of using cover and terrain to remain hidden, and I always locate good setup spots before touching a call. Ideally, I’ll call every 50 to 75 yards, but I might extend that to 100 steps or more if I can’t find a good setup.
