He was following one yesterday.

I'm going to try down the shore next week.

I did take the neighbor out yesterday. We heard two gobblers early. Had to be out of the woods by 8 to get the kids, so we didn't stick around long enough to lure anyone

I headed out Yesterday. I finally heard some birds Gobbling early. I stayed out until noon, I didn't see any birds, but just being out in the woods on a beautiful day, and at least hearing some
Gobbling was a win for me. I was stalked down by a young hunter who was interested in my slate call clucks and purrs.

I've stopped hearing any gobbling in the area I've been hunting. Does that mean they've been harvested or is the breeding over?

Sometimes they respond to pressure too and stop gobbling.

Finally made the dream come true!
For the first time ever, I had a textbook morning. They weren't roosted on my ridge, but at least they kept gobbling after fly down. Called this dude in from the next ridge over about 90min after sunrise. I could hear him going off, but I couldn't see him, I wanted to get up and inch over so bad, but I kept still, kept quiet, and he came right up the steep side to me!
First Maryland bird, first public land bird!

Congrats to everyone who got birds, I had fun chasing them but couldn't connect this season. Stopped early from neck pain, hopefully next season!
