In most situations, less calling, is your best bet. Like already stated, most turkeys won't just come in runnning and gobbling every step like the videos show. It does happen but rarely.
If one is gobbling and getting closer, then shuts up....my gun is up and ready for go time. They love getting sneaky about the 75 yard mark and using a flanking manuver. One getting quiet at close distance means you need to go into sensory overdrive. Listen for foot steps, drumming, and scanning for the big ol' white forehead etc...
Once I get an answer and a gobbler is definitely coming my way I shut up except for some soft clucks and purrs. He knows where I am so why call more just to be calling....then wait begings. Alot of times they can't stand the thought a hen might have decided to go else where for love.
Field turkeys are the hardest IMO. A pretty boy or a few hen decoys might change your outcome but you never know. I will take on a turkey anyday in the woods compared to a wide open field bird.
