    Try decoys on the open areas adjacent to some of your wooded areas--a couple of hen decoys just might help out.

      countryboy I am in Ky also and am having the same problem. Occasionaly I can get one to gobble using a box call, calling really loud. I had decoys out last weekend with 2 toms in my neighbors field walking around. They never did cross the fence line all day long!! I tried everything. They just weren't interested! Trying again tomorrow. Good Luck!

        Sounds like a lot of hens looking for toms.
        Try calling some hens in. Use kee-kee, whines and purrs with a yelp or 2 thrown in. Sometimes the hens will bring the toms in tow with them.
        No matter stay at it this situation could change any time with the toms sudden out gobbling for a girl.
        good hunting.
        later,

            get within 150 yards of were the roost and right before dark do a bunch of cutting or a fly up cackle the go back to were you did the calling the night before and don't call to them until they fly down and don't use decoys. I did that and i killed a tom on 4/28/10 so it dose work
