New technique on calling tom's
« on: March 08, 2011, 09:10:46 PM »
signed up for another forum like HM suggested to get the word out on TH.com and found this post.  "double teaming tom's"  you and another hunter you trust, spread out about 30 yards apiece and one opens up on a box call to get the tom's attention and the other hunter than adds some sweet seductive hen talk on a slate or mouth call.  gives the impression of a small flock.  if still no tom's responding by moving closer due to being henned up, resort to ticking the tom's dominant hen off with both callers mimicking her responses.

any other hunters employed this tactic before?

Back in 2003 eight of us went to Texas to hunt Rio's. A good friend of mine took his 13 years old son and I took my 12 year old son. On the second days hunt Randy and I employed this tactic to call in two great tom's together and both boys took there first Rio's at twenty five yards. I set up calling with a mouth call with the boys and Randy set 30 yards behind me with a slate call. We had these gobblers so fired up they traveled up the river a good 300 yards. The cool part was we could see these birds coming for about two hundred yards before the boys took their shots. I remember it like it was yesterday I could hear there hearts beating and the heavy breathing. I kept trying to calm them down before the shot. It's was awesome and it made for two proud dad's and some excited youngmen. Give it a try it works....

I have,  it works on the dual callers...sometimes it ticks off the gobbler...and sometimes it dosent work at all, he sometimes will not leave the hens he has....imitating the boss hen works a lot but she will come in wanting a fight...I've had a dominant hen knock my hen decoy over and peck the heck out of it...she was mad ;D

I have and here is a twist to it. If the tom gets hung up and wont come in, one of the hunters backs up about 20 yards and then calls, then backs up 20 more and calls. Keep doing that until the second hunter is about 60 to 100 yards behind the other hunter. That tom cant stand to think his lady is leaving and he will come right to the first hunter.

I have tried it.  Like DPD  said it's a 50/50 deal.
What I try to do is tick the dominant hen or the one doing all the cackling off and get her to try to come in.
If I can do that, Ole boss beard is soon to follow.
But, I have also had the hen to cackle and go the other direction because she doesn't want her man with another hen.

THAT CAN WORK REALLY GOOD. ESPECIALLY ON A BIRD THATS IN THE FIELD. MOVE THE CALLER Back in the woods. and set the shooter at the edge, sometimes the bird will walk to the edge of the field
