How are the birds vocalizing in your area... name the county...

Going on yet another 2 day trip sunday thru early monday afternoon. Hoping to get a chance at #4. Being my last bird for the spring I want him to be a longbeard and would like to get a show from him or have him come to my homemade tube call. But that's beside the point... I am just wanting to get an idea if I should put much time into listening or if they are going quiet in some areas and I should run n gun more. They also tend to disappear or at least shut up on public land as the season gets older. And having a known roosting area where birds always fly down onto private land has been frustrating. So what's the report for your area on gobbling, on the roost and on the ground?

Okay on the limb, horrible on the ground. Roosting with hens, and staying with them all dang day.

Southern Middle TN this past week: 5-15 gobbles on limb between 5:40 and 6:30 if I was lucky and close enough to hear them. 10-20 mph winds at daylight with excess foliage as we have now does not help any. Virtually no gobbling on ground.

We were at Chuck Swan Thur and Fri and never heard a bird. We left yesterday and hunted my lease in Morgan county last night and this am. Heard 2 around daylight, got set up and never heard or seen them again.

Hunted with a bud in Haywood county this morning (SW TN). No gobbles at daylight (wind a constant 10-20 mph did not help matters). After walking 2-3 miles trying to hear a gobble, we managed to slip up on one in a disced field at 7:30. He was about 70 yards when I first saw him on a dead walk toward the woods we were in, but angling away from us. The wind was a howling, about 20+ mph at eye level. He slipped out of the field and into the woods about 120 yards from us and we called him up to 70 or so in the woods before he had enough and just turned and eased off. He never gobbled or strutted while we could see him. I am pretty sure the gale force winds had him nervous as a cat on a tin roof.

I'm Morgan. Multiple places. Out of 12 hunts I've only heard 10. Different birds. 7 of the birds never gobbled on the ground. 2 of the 3 birds that were on the ground only gobbled once. The one bird that gobbled good I killed. Out of the 12 hunts 8 hunts have been long days of silence birds. Not one gobble including today.
Worst gobbling year for me ever.
