MUTE turkeys

Postby Rajun cajun » Thu Feb 15, 2007 11:40 pm

The lease I am presently on has numerous flocks of turkeys. Two flocks roost in the hardwood bottome where my frien and I have our permamnent stands.

I saw tureys all year, never heard one gobble on the roost nor could I shock him into gobbling.

lease mamanger says they kill a few birds every year but in 10 years have never heard one gobble oNE TIME!

That is weird but believe him!

Gonna try and work on them in a month or so!

maybe the gobblers feel that they have all they want so no need to attract attention? Never heard of a place where they didn't gobble at least a little. Good Luck on that plot this year!

Makes you wonder if he's out there when they are gobbling. I know it sounds wierd, but if your not listening for them, you probably won't hear them :)

you could be loosing a lot of those turkeys to neighboring properties during the spring. turkeys tend to range differently during the winter than they do in the spring.

if there's a massive amounts of predators like coyotes or bobcats there; it may shut those gobblers up too. just a thought

The manager hunt them and kill one or two every year.

It is not just our lease, it is like that for a 15 mile radius.

Yeah and thery have a lot of coyotes and some bobcats.

They average about 5-8 turkeys killed each year on this place. And there is only 5 turkey hunters.

I hear hens all the time.

May be the hen population is just so heavy they dont have to gobble.

Weird anyway..........
