At my tractor? I have a 4 cylinder 1952 Ford tractor and if I go up to my upper field early in the morning or come down near dark when I turn my tractor off the turkeys are gobbling like crazy up on the hill...After a minute they quit...this happens often...

They are telling your tractor to shut up cause it is so loud they can't hear their hens!!!!!

I'm thinking of inventing a box call that sounds like my tractor...Cruff10, you could be right but usually it's early,coming off roost, or late, going to roost...I just came down from working on that upper field and no gobbling...

i personally think they gobble to get me all worked up and nervous and to make me do things i would not normally do , as in belly crawling threw knee high cotton mouth infested grass they have also been known to make me climb mountains and walk hundreds of miles threw mosquito and tick infested woods but what it means to other turkeys i couldnt tell ya
