Yeah but they might bust the hens away from the gobblers right before roosting... which is a good thing.fingerz42 said:Con - Less gobbling. More people out to spook birds before roosting. It can make mornings not as consistent as the first two weeks.
I agree.I called in 4 yesterday afternoon to my buddy.They were just pecking away in a field about 200 yards away over a rise.We got set up and they immediately answered my first set of yelps.I yelped again about a minute later and they were almost on top of us.Two jakes came right up to me and a big mature bird came strutting in from behind.My buddy shot and missed and 4 took off.I have no idea what the 4th bird was.Those birds covered a good 200 yards in less than 5 minutes.Fullfan said:Pros for us, Kids did not have to miss school to hunt.
Birds Gobble just as much as they do in the morning.
Most Gobblers will be looking for hens just prior to roosting
Less hunters screwing us the setup.
Cons, wife hates the fact they we do not do much till all
our tags are filled.
Jr. crushed a gobbler last night at 2023. Bird started gobbling at 1830 till his death. He put on a great show and gobbled just as hard as any of the birds we have killed in the morning..
