It's a ghost town here not sure what happened between last Saturday and today. Not a single courtesy gobble. Last week was 4 or 5 different gobblers. I just don't get it

Last Saturday, I heard ~500 gobbles. One flock of 6 jakes were really hammering! Today, not a single gobble! Beautiful morning too. The bastids...

A few really distant gobbles between 5:45 - 6:00, nothing since. Really starting to think I should have blasted that Jake that I passed on 5/2

Reset in a different part this time in a clearing in the woods. Hopefully the move was smart

Long week at work and slept through the 430 alarm. Out by seven and hearing nothing but beats work. Here till 10 or so when my boys are done with NYSMMA solos, then out to mother's day chores. Good luck all.

Well, I got my neighbors rooster riled up. Does that count for anything?

Today I get in early and setup where he's been heading after fly down, he lands on the power lines and goes into the woods on the other side. Strutting and gobbling for an hour. At 7 he walks away gobbling. I tried to get around and ahead of him but never heard him again. I did have three wood ducks jumping from tree to tree over me that was pretty cool

Haven't heard a single peep over here. Hopefully mid morning improves as the internet claims it does

Never heard a thing until 6:30, then heard 3 gobblers in 3 different directions within 150 yards. They responded to my calls, and gobbled several times, but none showed up. Haven't heard a peep since 7:15...

Cool hunt, but no bird. Set up on the inside corner of a field, two hen dekes out. Had a bird gobbling on the roost behind me about 5:10. About 5:20 he’s down and coming closer behind me gobbling over and over.  Then he’s off to my left and inside the woods about 50 yds. I can see movement, but no clean look at the bird. He continues to move away inside the woods toward the cut corn field 300 yds away. Heard him gobbling up there til almost 6:00.

Then 50 yds behind me I hear a couple of clucks and a boomer gobble that startled me. They moved in the same direction as the first bird, but stepped out in the field about 120 yds away. 4 hens, and then the tom. Gave a couple of clucks and the hens all looked over. The tom gobbles twice and I can see his swinging beard. Big bird. They all moved away along my field edge to the corn field. Couldn’t get either tom interested. Saw them on the horizon 500 yds away in the corn stubble on my way out at 7:30.

I must have heard 50-60 gobbles between those two, but not a gobble after 6:10. Had things to do today, so it was a short sit, but I’ll be inside the woods 50 yds off that field tomorrow morning.

Oh yeah, heard what sounded like a freaking roar from 100 or so yds in the woods when I was setting my dekes. Never heard that before, and I imagine it was a bobcat. Made the hair on my neck stand up! Short sit, but a cool sit this morning.

Just had a big light brown spider crawling on my arm inside my fleece. Needless to say I may not have to take that dump anymore. Hopefully that means turkeys will come soon. Hopefully this wind isn't going to skunk me out today

Today I learned that the hundreds of acres of turkey woods that I had to myself, I no longer have to myself

In my vocabulary, passing up means you had  the chance to take  a good shot and chose not to, for whatever reason...
What Bill did, was  chose not to take a marginal shot, which is to his credit...


Don’t disagree one bit.

Just tagged out. I was just getting ready to leave when 2 gobblers snuck in. I shot the first one who gave me the best shot.
