Gobbling Activity?

26 posts in this topic

Went out this morning. Heard no gobbling... Walked around and called. No response. What gives? Usually can get a few to rattle off here whether I see them or not.

 

Any gobbling reports?

Been pretty talkative around us until 10am then quiet, a uptick in gobbling again around 5pm.

 

Central Minnesota.

I don't expect a lot of noise this morning since it's dreary.  I'm hoping for better tomorrow morning before the wind picks up.

 

I've heard limited gobbling even when I've heard it.  One or two, then quiet.  I'm not far from Anyfish2 but the amount of people activity could be playing into it.

Over 200 easily this morning. Incredibly this is in a pretty low density area. But there are birds in this little pocket and they were fired up this morning.

We heard a couple before the lighting and heavy down pour. We are thinking they come out that rain is ending. We heard 20 gobbles from the roost. The lighting shut up em quick.

All we heard was rain on the top of our blind this a.m. Not sure if we should just pack it up. Moved one spot already.

They are gobbling their heads off this morning!  Too bad they got pushed even further away from the ground I can hunt by everyone out enjoying the evening last night.

 

Since there's nothing close and we have people here for Easter, I'm staying in.  Good thing it's a long season with a bow.

 

Good luck to you who are out.

Sun morning. A few gobbles from different directions. A gun goes off from private and it goes silent. Hr later gobbling starts again but they all eventually hushed after 8:00. Had a group of jakes at 10 yds come investiagate my dekes about 6:45am but the only one with a clearly visible beard (about 4 inches) was too fidgety for a shot. The 3 trailing jakes decided to turn their attention to the blind and got within about 5 yds looking right into the shooting windows. And that's when the jig was up. Stayed til late morning and went home for easter egg hunt with the kids. Was a fun hunt nonetheless.

Really really quiet this morning. We were within 80 yards of a couple toms on the first but they only gobbled a few times and went the other way of the roost. Bummer!  Seemed like a perfect set up. Not sure why so quiet today...

Very unusually quite here in south central mn for me today. Heck, only saw 7 lone individual hens driving around after this mornings hunt. Was odd I didn't see any toms like I normally would.

My brother got out for a quick evening hunt with my nephew as his baseball game was cancelled due to all of the rain yesterday.  Didn't hear any gobbles but had a dozen or so Jake's and toms sitting in front of the blind.  Ducked into the woods  and had turkeys everywhere after 20 minutes.  Ended up with this one.1920.jpeg

 

One kid left to tag out and I think they made it into the blind tonight. ;)

Going to sit with my uncle Sunday morning to help him call some in. He heard a bunch of gobbling at the next farm over same place all of them came from when I shot mine. Going to put my blind on his property and see if we can get my uncle his.

    • well gobbled like crazy in the morning finally got a hen to come out she came 1 foot away from blind. Then 4 more came behind her 2 toms and 2 hens then the hens went back to the woods and one tom followed the other tom stayed in the open strutting back and forth just out of range then a crane came and he strutted at that then a goose came and he strutted at that they all came out just out of range and cut to our side. They sat there strutting at each other and couldn't get them to come in. One of them came back started walking to our decoys once again just out of range. Uncle tried to get out and go through the dirt bike track he's currently laying on top a jump within 60 yards of them no other options to sneak he chose the wrong way to go should have crawled against the burn... Man these buggers suck going to change blind spots next time know where they roost and see where they strut on the property. should of had a fan decoy out I bet that would have drawn them in
    • Well our lilacs were just starting to bud out yesterday and I was thinking we should go take a peek today. Unfortunately we got 2 inches of snow overnight and it's still coming down! I'm pretty sure Hubbard county will have to wait at least a week to ten days with the temps forecast.
    • Sorry...no excuses BB...the better team did win....4-1. Lucky for the Wild that Statsny was not playing from the start or it woukd have been a sweep. Love the fact that the national hockey gurus are ripping the Wild right now..read Souhans article pretty much what I've been saying. http://m.startribune.com/wild-again-not-good-enough-when-it-matters/420167633/ While Chicago is telling it like it is...the Wild are sending the wrong message...and Chicago has 3 cups in recent past....6 overall...pretty obvious which organization is trying to win the cup every year and which one is happy just "selling tickets".
    • Got off to a late start, but was able to get to the lower river at 6 AM. Frost covered the ground, as temps were barely above freezing. I could hear turkeys gobbling as I walked through the field. Once I made it to the wooded river valley, the sound of grouse drumming echoed through the woods. Eagles and ospreys continually flew over my head throughout he morning. The water was mabye a couple inches high, and somewhat cloudy, but was noticeably clearing as the morning progressed. 8 o'clock seemed to be the magic hour, as that's when I caught most of my 13 brown trout. Biggest was 16 inches, and had a few swipes from some dandies as well. Beautiful morning to be on the river!
    • So i have experimented with a bunch of brands to see which ones walk the best .... of coarse it depends on fisherman, rod & line being used.   7"2" Cabelas bass rod medium heavy tourney rod,  power pro 45# ...here is the order of best walking frog that worked for me off the dock.   1.  Terminator frog 2.  Bobby's perfect frog (pretty close to terminator) by snag Proof 3.  Spro frog (ok) 4.  KVD frog  (took some work) 5.  Booya pad crasher (teririble)   These are the ones i own ... terminator and snag proof where effortless!!!
