Get a turkey vest so you can move around. A pop up will make you tied down to that spot. Sometimes you have to move in order to kill the bird.
Thanks for the tip!

Yea it will work. It may not be the most comfortable, but it will mostly definitely allow you to sit longer than without one. Also, a member mentioned calling in open places. While yes it is true that turkey prefer more open areas due to predators, dont take that as meanign get in the middle of a big opening and call. I prefer to call before I get to larger openings in case there are turkeys in the opening. I never walk across open fields or big open areas. I always stay hidden in the woods. A turkey can see very well and if they see you go walking across an open field chances are they will be gone. I dont even walk down roads unless I have to. Also, any bend in a road, before you get there hit a call. May be a turkey just around the bend somewhere blowed up strutting in the road.
Another thing to keep in mind is how you set up. Set up so that you always have the upper hand on the turkey. Also keep in mind, yes there may be a bird gobbling his head off in front of you, but one can come in silent from any other direction. Listening for other sounds like wing tips dragging and also spitting and drumming. Some birds just never gobble but will do these other things. I killed a stud of a bird one time that never gobbled. All he did was Yelp.
