Hi Guys,

This might seem like a rookie question to some and it probably is, but is there a rule of thumb for when gobbler's come down?

I had a jake fly past me the other day before 6, which seemed early to me. Do the big guys stay up later?

Please share your experiences.

Thanks!

There are no absolutes. Spend a lot of time listening to the bird gobbling on the roost and if you pay close attention you can hear that the gobble sounds different after he hits the ground. Depending on the terrain and vegetation you can detect this from a few hundred yards away. Then check your watch. And go set up on him.
Excellent feedback, guys. Thanks.

Another basic question: how do you tell when you hear him gobbling whether he's on the roost to begin with? Any difference between ground gobble and on the roost gobble?
