Not a sound again this morning. I have been out almost every day and the only day i have heard anything was the opening day when i harvested bird #1. Since then the only thing i have heard was a mad hen 2 weeks ago. Very frustrating but everyone else i have talked to are saying the same.
Gobbling has shut down here in 1B. They gobbled pretty good for the first 2 weeks and now they are dead silent.
Did catch a longbeard cutting across a field last night and got set up inside the woods about 60 yards. Hit him with a call and he gobbled and turned and marched right to the edge of the woods and I caught a glimpse of his head once and heard him spit and drum a few times and then he vanished...
The weather has been downright miserable and I think a lot of hens have abandoned their nest and are back with the gobblers most of the day.
