I believe that large groups of jakes will run off gobblers, but I don't think that is the sole reason. Turkeys have a big range, and that may have been them big gobblers area that time of year. They probably just moved on, along with the jakes taking over.

I think there are different types of jakes. Some jakes are what I call baby jakes that hardly gobble or strut. You also see jakes that gobble and strut with hens like longbeards. I have seen big jake flocks seemingly ignore hens, and just fight amongst themselves and with any longbeard. They are kinda like mean gangs if you no what I mean.
I think alot of this has to do with the ages of the jakes, like some may be a couple of months older, but im no biologist. It could also have to do with a lack of longbeards around.
