Anyone hunt beside a highway during turkey season and notice a lot of people feel the need to honk there horn if they know you're hunting? I hunt there during deer season and no horns blowing. This has been happening for years, but I finally decided to ask the experts. \:\) Just wondering if it's other turkey hunters trying to "help" with the shock gobbling with some birds, and I have to admit i have heard a bird or two gobble after a horn has blown, but I've never been lucky enough to benefit from this.

Are they honking at you or your decoy? If they are honking at you, you might consider hiding better

A place I hunt has birds that hang out by the road. I've been a ways off and know people have no clue I'm there and they'll honk at them. The last week of the season this year I was pretty close to them but hidden from the road. It was 7:00 in the morning and a truck came by with what appeared to be teenagers in the back. They just hollered at the birds and all of a sudden 2 hens and the longbeard flew across the road. There were 3 jakes too and they went back and forth fifty times before finally feeding off right by me. I let them go on their merry way but was so close to the big one and they dang sure ruined it. Oh well that's how it goes.

not hunting anywhere near the road, and if I were I'd never use a decoy within sight of a road. \:\)
