Was he in the field and you were in the woods? Not the best scenario, if you were in the field and he was in the woods that would be the best, if you are both in the field that is second best.

If hes off your property, give it your best to call him over, 80 yards is plenty enough to get inside his head.

At 80 or so yards, a turkey will hear any call you make, even soft purrs and clucks. Whether he comes to you or not, he knows precisely where you ( hen ) are. He will also REMEMBER. You don`t always have to employ a tactic that includes moving around through the woods. You can stay put, provided you have the time, and wait for the hens that are probably with him to dump him. He may well gobble an hour to two hours later, hear your response that lets him know you (hen ) are still there, and be in your lap 15 minutes later. I know this first hand.
