Call-shy

   A term describing a turkey that won't come to conventional calling. Often, this bird has been called to by hunters and perhaps shot at and spooked. A call-shy gobbler may not come to a hen but will gobble and wait for her to come to him, as she's naturally supposed to do. If he gobbles and she doesn't come, some hunters think he'll walk off because he assumes the calling is coming from a hunter.
