At 12:00 my buddy and I heard a 2 gobblers gobble once or twice. They were a long way down the mountain. at 2:00 we got down there and one of them started to get HOT. One of the hottest gobbling birds i've heard all year. Going up underneath him we got with in 60 yards but he was on top of a bluff. I started yelping he would answer. Then way off in the distance we heard a second bird answer. Now we had 2 birds going at it. That second bird came a long ways away and meet the first bird until he shut up. Neither bird would come to us and they started walking away gobbling every breath!

In all my times turkey hunting i've never had a gobbler take a gobbler away from me. I've had hens to that, but never a gobbler!

Two other times we closed the gap to 100 yards. Never could get a shot. Once time they started fighting and pur fighting. Last time we heard them was around 6:00 That was a long 6 hour hunt and we had to of walked 5 miles or more.

Great hunt good experiance!

It's amazing how far we are willing to chase them sometimes.

Sounds fairly normal for Mtn birds, they love to screw with us all.

First being under them hurts, and the second bird may have been dominant and had hens.

Or and this has happened a bunch to me this year, they were jakes and would not fully commit in fear of getting stomped. There are loads of jakes in the mtns which gobble just like a mature bird, but will either walk right in or lead you on a forever quest only to never offer a shot.

I have had success with birds like you describe in the mtns by walking away from them calling for about 100 yards, then run back towards them 100 yards and set-up. Never make another call no matter how many times they stand there and gobble. A lot of times they will break.

I hate them gay turkeys.
That's the only explanation.
One's gobblin fit to bust at hen talk, another starts gobblin, then they get together and walk off.
Probably talking about drapes and fruity drinks!

You gotta change it up on a bird like that, if there was 2 of you splitting up would have cost him his life. Its a little more difficult by yourself like Hood said, you gotta be moving!
