Since the hens and the toms are all bunched together, I've heard the best way to hunt them is to bust them up and scatter them, then set up at that exact spot. It won't be long before you will hear them yelping and trying to get back together and they will all be heading back to the place they were last together.

In my county we do not have a fall season and seem the turkeys are on the decline. Just to many coons , predators for them to be very successful. This year it was all the water.
I have about given up even hunting turkey in my state opting to go to Oklahoma instead.
Have always dreamed of taking my son to take an Osceola and them a Merriam.
Enjoy God's Great Outdoors!!!

Here in both Kansas and Missouri (I am right on the state line and hunt both states) there is a fall season where you can take either a hen or tom with a limit of two.  I find it much tougher hunting as the turkey are harder to pattern and don't really respond to calls.  I haven't had any luck busting up flocks and then calling back birds EXCEPT for the very young hens.  I find the only strategy is to try to ambush them, and then hope the toms come by you first.  In some ways I find it more fun to hunt quail, woodcock and squirrels while waiting for deer season.  I haven't decided if I will go fall turkey hunting this year or not.

here in PA we can hunt either sex but it is harder to locate them because the only thing on their mind is food
