You'll here some gobbles as early as Feb., but only before flydown. They'll gobble very little on the ground. Give it a couple of weeks and they'll become a lot more vocal. If we were to get some warm weather, they'd really turn on.

i hear them gobbling about every year during bowseason...i think its a lost call because they gobble and run erratically,very fast while craining there necks(rubber necking) ...

I'm heading to Morgan co. at first light to hit the ponds and scout birds. I hope to hear a few gobblers. Just primed my slate call with a little steel wool. Still sounds a bit rusty. Ill be ready come April. Man, I love spring!

i was in a hurry earlier so i didn't get to tell you guys everything. right off the roost we had 4 jakes and 2 toms fly down and walk away choking on themselves gobbling so much. then we walked to our next set up spot but before we could get there we were cut off by THE BOSS with what sounded like 3 or 4 hens cutting. so in other words we had a greeeaaat morning. hope everyone has this much LUCK scouting.
