I called up a bearded hen one time. She jumped up on a log and went into a full strut. She hung around for quite awhile. It was pretty interesting. I wish I could have gotten a picture. She had a pretty long beard, too. So, I am glad you put the 99.99% because I think I saw something that only .01% of hunters ever see.
I have seen em up puff up and strut at my decoy.

Thanks again for all the insight guys. Heard some Hens clucking, but no gobbler; tried 3 areas. Heard hogs in all areas, with really fresh rooting in 2. A big 250 lb Boar broke about 12-15 yards out, fired 3 shots but didn't connect; he hollered though!

Those big ones are sort of tough to kill with a turkey load.
