    <P style="MARGIN: 0px">What a couple of days we had!!! Our first morning was GREAT!!!! I'd planned to take my nephew to a spot on a power line right-o-way. We had 5 gobblers sounding off the roost. They must have been sharing the same tree!!! Best gobbling I've heard in seasons!! One would stop and the others would keep it going. I swear it sounded like one continuous gobble for&nbsp;5 minutes!!! BUT!!!!!!, soon as they hit the ground....SILENT AS A CHURCH MOUSE!!!!!! We tried everything we had. They just went the other way. Every now and then one would gobble. They wanted nothing to do with us!!! But what a heart pounding morning!!! This morning was much the same. Birds gobbling off the roost then SILENT!!! Chased them all afternoon!! Finally cut 3 gobblers off and had them coming right towards us. Had them answer my call just a couple times. Sat for 2 hours and the birds never did show up. Last gobble was only about 100 yards away. I just think there are to many hens up and running around right now. I will not hunt this week due to that assumption. Maybe not even next week. I'm guessing that the end of the season will be the best. Good luck to all!! Be safe and know before you pull that trigger!!!</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">SOB</P>
