While I was hunting this morning I was thinking. I wonder how many birds do you guys hear per hunt? I have noticed this year is different for me. Normally we hear 2 or 3 per hunt. This year I have been lucky to hear 1 per hunt. That's in Grundy,Marion and coffee counties. I am not complaining. I called the only bird I heard to within 60 yards this morning. Probably could have killed him If I had a better set up.But hey it was a pretty good hunt anyway.

I had several days this year that I didn't hear any at all; if I heard 1 bird (even if he was off the property) it was a "good" day. \:\( Normally, 4-6 different birds is a pretty typical.

I have not been a single morning that I havn't heard at least 1 gobbler but have only heard 2 gobbles in the evening. We are hearing 3 each morning right now but 2 are unhuntable for us.

Twelve is the most I heard, when I bothered to count. Two to three average.

In the morning lots, couldn't say how many, but i generally only have time in the evening, so maybe if I'm lucky one.

Last night I was on one field that i have permission on and happened to look to my right onto land I don't have permission to hunt. I see a turkey and start watching then I realize there are 11. they were 3-400 yds away. All appeared to be jakes and toms. I called and they didn't even look. They just kept picking and feeding along. one went into strut and then some of the others started fighting with each other which was fun to watch, but they just kept going. never gobbled that I could hear.

We heard at least 18-20 different birds on 3 or 4 hunts earlier in the year now in the same place 5 or 6 on a good morning.

On a different farm about 10 min down the road we have heard at least 6 every morning we have hunted it and there are 4 longbeards that run together that will not gobble

Trousdale County farm 8-15

Smith County farm 0-3, however this farm has been in the 8-20 range the past 4 years. Just an odd year out there this year so I only killed one off of it this year and quit hunting it.

That's interesting. I normally hunt rhea with some college buddies every year but due to our kids' baseball schedules couldn't get together this year. That said they said they've seen and heard as many birds as they ever have. They're on Evansville mtn.

Simple enough and that explains it. I actually thought that might be your answer once I posed my question.

I never hear very many of them, but hear them often. On the roost is when I hear the most. Hunted all day Easter Sunday maybe hear 5 or 6 different birds throughout the day, possibly more on the roost but I really don't remember.
