I have hunted populations in areas around my home that did not gobble at all. There area good flocks in these areas every year, myself, my Dad, and quite a few others have hunted these areas ever since there has been turkeys and we have heard a total of 2 gobbles between us all these years and they were from jakes. We still hunt there some,just have to ambush them like you would deer.

Don't change the taste and I'd hunt them if they couldn't gobble, yelp, see, hear or walk.

It wouldn't be near as much fun but I'd still hunt them. Just have to sit and blind call for longer periods of time until you were sure nothing was in distance of you and then move to another spot. It sure wouldn't be the same though without the big gobble to get your blood flowing.

i prob still would but not as much and definitely not as serious. I agree with the others that I just CANNOT deer hunt turkeys, to me that is not very fun. I would still go out and see if i could find them and ambush them though.

The topic didnt say you still couldnt call one in so that part would still keep me in the woods

A few years ago, I hunted hard for about three or four days in a row and didn't hear a gobble on the big farm I was hunting. On the fourth day I called in a group of four toms and killed the biggest one of the bunch. The all four came in silent not the first gobble. I still had a blast, but would have enjoyed it all the more if they would have been gobbling.

Oh it is here afraid to say. I hunt north GA a lot and it has been open over a week now. I have only heard gobbles last weekend on opening day. Gobbled their heads off on the roost. Haven't heard a word since. I know they are there but not talking. I have seen hens by themselves clucking and yelping, but no tom. Really weird start to the season. Saw to big boys today by together so they are in trouble in the morning. Cross my fingers!

Sorry to here you went all that way not to hear any capt.Not trying to rub salt in the wounds ,but like I said maybe there is more to it than our 4 bird limit.What state were hunting btw?


I was in Miss, and the birds were there, tracks, strut marks, poop, and and dust pits do not lie. Nor do hundreds of sightings during deer season. The birds are there, they just were locked down.

If history repeats itself then the silence will soon spread northward this way.

I would. Walking and stalking is just as much fun and it's a lot harder to get close. I love to sit and call but there are a lot of days they are not going to respond. When that happens I get mobile.
