Me, I probably still would. It would be like deer hunting if they didnt gobble. But, less exciting

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.

I contemplated that very though over the last 4 days as I hunted silent woods. Came home early because quite simply we did not hear a gobble in 4 days. This is on ground which is usually ripping with 20-30 birds a morning everyday except when the weather is just awful. Perfect weather, and no birds.

Figured I would come home and earn some points and save a few vacation days.

Yes, I would quit the sport if they didn't gobble. I don't do this to ambush, snipe, bushwhack, or deer hunt.
