Got on this guy at a new spot this morning, and he hung up at 100 yards for an hour gobbling his head off . After calling every ten minutes or so wasn't cutting it, I went silent for 30 minutes and he couldn't handle it anymore and finally came looking!

Just other forms of turkey communication by a gobbler that typically precedes a gobbler strutting. IMO, spitting sounds similar to two small sticks (saplings) being slapped together (tick sound). Drumming sounds like a low frequency VROOM. These links may help you out.
