How to Unhang a Hung Up Gobbler

A hung up gobbler is one of the most frustrating things you’ll encounter in the turkey woods. Here’s how to unhang him.

We’ve all been there before. You’re working a bird that responds to your calls and comes closer by the minute only to stop just out of range or sight.

Use veteran turkey guide Bob Walker’s technique to unhang that hung up gobbler, then make some gobbler hot wings.

Sometimes it’s the smallest details that can make or break the hunt. How you set up on a turkey can be just as important as the calls you make and subtle sounds like scratching in the leaves can help convince that wary, old gobbler that you are what you say you are so that he’ll come in for a look.

When he does, give him a headache.
