Just when I was getting hooked on turkeys, I stopped hearing them. Are they silent where y'all are? I've been hunting near Manchester and Tullahoma. I was out at Yanahli and Laurel Hill over the weekend, and I didn't hear a thing in those places either. I've read about peaks and such, but I've also read that a lot of folks don't believe in the peaks. Am I just in the wrong places or have they shut up?

I hunted in Manchester this morning and never heard a gobble. I did see 2 strutters and a bunch of hens. Saw two more strutters and some hens on the way home.

Oh yeah they are, had a couple fired up off the roost while looking for morels on Sunday morning in Maury county. Then had one gobble nearby a few times and heard him drumming while picking mushrooms.

Hunted yesterday afternoon and had a bird gobble his head off for two solid hours basically on his own. We were getting set up when we heard him the first time. Gonna try to get on him in the morning before work.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

I bet on roost they will for sure. I had one gobble in a field Sunday afternoon.

Had one gobbling from 11 til about 1230 today , he would come about halfway to me , then turn around and go the other way , the whole time gobbling his dang fool head off. Never would come over to our property though , sometimes i hate turkeys.
When the Good Lord grants us the treasures we prefer , I think i'll take mine in spurs.

Since they've never roostes near my bed, I'll just keep going. This is my first season, and I'm a little concerned that getting up this early this often in the spring is going to encourage my wife to make quite a chore list for me!
