Another way to deal with gobblers that are henned up is to call to the hens, with a bit of cutting you may fire the hens up and call those hens to your location , they in turn will drag him along!

you know i have been using a knight and hale tom coffin and a MAD aluminum slate call and im pleased how there working the birds.
