If it makes you feel better I won't laugh at you for that, I saw one gobbling this past fall from my treestand. Granted it wasn't the best gobble I ever heard, but it was a gobble.


This was the same way we thought they were jakes until they were about 30 yds away and could tell.they were adult hens

There's a vid floating around YouTube of a hen strutting and gobbling.

I haven't seen a fight but I did see a jake run off a longbeard. the LB was coming right at me when the jake come running in and chased him out of sight (200 yds) then the jake came back to my decoys and I don't shoot jakes but I was mad enough to make an exception that day.

Several years ago I had a longbeard coming across the field to the hens and a group of jakes flew a creek and ran in. They chased him off and then fed away. Was waiting for them to get out of site and was going to try and circle up on the ridge to get in front of the gobbler. Well the jakes got almost out of site and turned around and started back. Told my brother if they come back in range I'm killing one of them. They did and one went home with me.

I've seen a group of jakes run off a coyote. I guess that jakes, like teenagers, sometimes have more balls than sense.
