I had one Gobbling up a storm this morning for about 45min. That turkey hung-up about 60 yds and then went mute. I'll give him another chance in the AM. -0078

I think the weather changes have a lot to do with this. There is not much pressure where I'm at in TN and they can gobble all around one morning and nothing for several days. Right when you think that there isn't a gobbler for miles of you they just start gobbling everywhere. You just need to make sure your out there every chance you get because you just don't know how they are going to act from day to day. It's the same with calling or decoys. One day they will come running in the next they stay outside the decoys or even run from them as fast as they can. Different days bring different results. Persistence will be rewarded. Good luck.
