Went this morning and didn't see or hear the first bird. Killed one Sunday afternoon in a horse pasture with hens and he gobbled several times.

What kind of weather are you referring to? Storms, rain, temps or what?

I think the temp got them messed up. Going from high 60s at to high 40s at night.

Cooler temps should have them gobbling more.

Wednesday morning was nasty low gray clouds with rain coming in, and very humid. In my experience not very good gobbling weather, and it proved that again.

Today we had a 25 degree temp swing with a low of 41 Wed. night, combine that with what is left of the absurd moon, and the dreaded east winds and the birds were silent again.

Who knows what tomorrow brings, but maybe better talking.

This has always been my experience for the areas I hunt. I LOVE a cool crisp morning with a low of 45-50 and light winds followed by the sun rising (like this morning, while I was at work). These have BY FAR been my best gobbling mornings over the last several years in the areas I hunt.

In the morning I'd try to hunt a pasture field that is picked down, or some other low-grass field. They don't like those tall, wet fields in the mornings. They'll probably be fine in the taller fields by noon or after.

Last hunt I was on, one was gobbling good in the woods during the morning and eventually headed out to a field where some hens and jakes were. shot him at 9:30am in the field, no strutting, just feeding and coming towards me. It was a corn field but the corn was only about 6" tall. I saw birds in the fields and woods that day. Sunny, nice weather. Heard at least 2 gobbling on the roost that morning. Marshall co.

I agree, but the sudden and dramatic shift in temps that can cause them to lock it up. Now this morning, they should be happy again. I also like cool clear crisp mornings, but post front crisp mornings are a toss up.

I agree 100%. Sudden temperature changes typically tend to throw them off as far as gobbling goes in the areas I frequent. My buddy and I always say it typically takes them a day of getting reacquainted after the sudden shifts in temps (an in-between day if you will) and then they should be back at it, gobbling and more vocal as we like.
