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

Some areas of the state have been going through this for years, to the point your lucky if you even hear a gobble in your county. People have laughed at me, called me a whiner, and told me I didn't know what I was talking. And its always people from different parts of the state who haven't experienced it. I hope it gets better and doesn't happen but with declines like that is say it won't be long before a lot of people get a taste of what I've been talking about.


Please explain.
