Just taking a poll of sorts,hearing about alot of birds just not responding to calls this yr and resulting in the use of other tactics,so did your birds come to a call or were they bushwacked,stalked ect.. I'll start, all three of mine came to calls.

All 3 of three of the birds I have killed gobbled their guts out. All had hens as well, bad part it was in 3 days in West TN.

Here in East TN I have only worked 3 birds all season. 1 I called in for a buddy, and 2 last wednesday which worked me more then I worked them, they at least gobbled however.

Other then that it has been the most silent turkey season I have ever had in 20 years of chasing these crazy things. The birds in this part of the state just will not gobble, period. At least in the mtns.

This past weekend I hunted 20 hours, hiked over 20 miles, and other then a couple of limb gobbles nothing talked. I have hunted from Oneida to Middlesboro across, and from Jellico to Lafollete deep, all points in between and it is just horrible for me.

I will not ambush, buckswhack, or deer hunt turkeys. So seasons like this make it dang tough.

I dont need any calls whatsoever. They tend to scare them this year.

I have hunted East TN almost exclusively from Campbell county to Anderson county, Knox county, and even the edge of Union co. a little and the Gobbling has been great! I dont hunt them like deer myself, run and gun is my style of hunting and its worked great with the birds really working well so far here!

I called all mine. They have responded great here this season. Not a lot of gobbling after flydown....but that seems to be the norm over the past several years. ;\)

I've called in 9 longbeards gobbling/ strutting to easy gun range this year (several were the same birds I called in more than once on different days). Add another 11 jakes, 3 of which came in gobbling and strutting.

Only chose to kill one bird this year, although I could have tagged out. Had I killed those birds the first time I called them in, I wouldn't have had birds to keep working over the next several days.

No bushwacking for me, just not my thing. I love the gobble/strut show too much.

Overall seemed birds worked to calls better this year than many of the past years.
