    Usually you can avoid that if you use decoys or most of the time if he responds shut up and make him hunt for you.

      And above all else, pray to God that he will trick the ole boy into coming your way.

        I always try intense thought projection, but it never works. Sometimes they just hang up. Remember, that it's natural for the hen to go to the gobbler, and that's just what he's waiting for. There are times when you just have to try him another day.

          My biggest mistakes in the past is over calling. There is a squealing hen call, don't remember the name of it found it in Walmart

            Don't call loud and don't call much only make soft yelps and most gobblers will come.

              sometimes if you move away from a gobbler,maybe 25-50 yards and start calling again that may push him over the edge.maybe even mix in a jake gobble to make him think someone else is moving in on his girl. whatever you do dont let him see you even if it means letting him leave and having to try for him another day. good luck
