Default Gobbles

He was feeling frisky yesterday morning. Gobbled 3 times on the limb and then 3 more on the ground. Hard to focus on deer hunting with all that going on. Sure hope they stay in the area come spring!

Dec. is typically when you will start to hear one here and there.
Most of the time a good solid two year old letting the world know he gets to
play the game this year.

As far as staying around, there is a reason he or they are there now
probably food driven.

As things progress his gobbling will become more frequent and intense. He
is looking for companionship, he is also attracting rival birds. This can be a
good thing jealousies has killed many turkeys.

How ever if he isn't hearing/see hens weather receptive or not he will move
on.

This goes back to will he stay around till season. Every year you hear folks
talk about I had birds during deer season and they left. They didn't have
what is needed to hold turkeys year around.

She is basically the reason if where they are isn't to her liking for nesting,
she will leave and he follows.

She knows what she needs to nest hatch and raise little ones.
For example she knows they need protein from bugs and green grass for
enzymes for young poults to develop.

Most people have green fields or plots, but did they have what she needed
prior to that. Good thick brush piles and thick under brush for her to hide.

Turkeys transition from winter, to spring to summer activities/patterns.
If you have everything they need and seek, you will hold bird if not they will
leave.

See what you can do to improve you land for turkeys and they will stay
around till season.

Good luck this year.
