Has anyone noticed an abundant increase in the number of jakes on thier property? I know I have, I can't walk 100 yards without seeing one. I seen about 15 this morning. There is either no toms around my property or thier just over run with jakes. Never seen anything like it. And they gobble just like a tom too really decieving and frustrating especially after you have done called up 3. Just noticed this on my place didn't know if anyone else was experiancing this?

We had a few on one farm I hunt but they have been killed already. On another place where they are protected(Thank the Lord) we have called up 7 so far. That is slightly above average.

Yep, lots of reports of gobbling jakes in south mid TN. I take it as a good sign for next year.

Yep...darn things are all over the places I hunt. The gobblers just kind of stand back and watch all the fuss before they come in if at all. I had 13 in one group come in and just assault my decoys. I had to just about run them off to keep them from tearing them all to pieces.

They are a nuisance this year, every where I have hunted has been infested with the dam things. I got into them today in the mtns, and they went flat crazy, then left unharmed.
