Muddy...might be able to chalk it up to age structure.

I recall research that showed a strong correlation between drumming and older age structure. In years following poor hatches for example (when a higher proportion of toms were 3yrs or older) gobbling was less frequent. Conversely, 2 years after good hatches, gobbling was absolutely through the roof.

You just hit the nail on the head!!! Not alot of 2yr olds this yr which equals less gobbling. If it wasn't for 2yr olds most people would quit hunting!!!! Years like these will cause a hunter to appreciate the 2yr old.

This is my first turkey season but I seldom hear a gobble after 9. Also, I'm such a novice I'm not even sure if I've heard any drumming.

Oh i hear a ton of birds on the roost. Its off the roost that is making me bang my head against walls. Its like they are in a rock concert until 630. I have taken a couple birds early this year, but i really enjoy the lonely birds mid morning and mid day and they are hanging out in libraries apparently.

Turkeys gobbling hard in South Cherokee and have been since day one. I reckon they will continue to gobble well on into June, as usual. Everyday is different in the turkeys woods, and to state that there is a peak gobbling period is nonsense in my opinion.

Not everybody can hear the drumming. I can't hear it but, I can hear them spit.
