Know where they want to go, and either be there waiting for them or get between the roost and where they are headed.  I have my property patterned pretty well and have had some success ambushing the birds.  It takes some extra patience, but you can do it.

ythey're weary now...I get in as close to the roost I dare 50 yards in the dark and just lightly call when he gobbles...of course with the weather like it is here I dont think the hens are nesting again and if they started one they are going to abandon it and restart when the right weather gets here @--0--0117

Just hang in there with them. If you have turkeys and you hunt hard the moment will come and take full advantage of it. @--0--0101

Do some scouting, Find where they roost and feed and then set up some where close to the roost and call softly don't over do it, Most of all be Patient, use a thick cushion @--0--0101
