They were gobbling good last night. Had several responding to my calls. Stay positive.

Certain gobblers will typically reduce their gobbling frequency as the season progresses, even though they are not "done".

I suspect they may figure out that frequent gobbling becomes a liability, when so often it attracts humans and other predators like coyotes and bobcats. Also, those that gobble most are the ones more likely to get killed by a predator, i.e. there are fewer surviving gobblers that like to gobble a few weeks into the season.

Finally, gobbling begats more gobbling. How many times have you not heard a gobble all morning, then when one gobbles, you hear others respond back with a gobble? But as the season progresses, there are fewer living birds, and those survivors gobble less, all of which contribute to more "silence" in the turkey woods. Ironically, sometimes the gobbling increases late in the season, following weeks of very little.
