    Heard one yesterday from my house gobble about 30 times on roost then hit the ground and I bet twice that amount. Also heard a couple on roost far off. Good luck.

    Haven't been since Sunday, but I'm sure they are gobbling. Will find out in the morning.

    Had one about 65 yards from me this morning but I wouldn’t shoot until he got 20 yards closer. He didn’t. He gobbled on the roost a few times and had him gobble 15 times on the ground to calls. Every bird is different and day to day changes. Just gotta go and hope for the best.

    Yes. Both Kentucky and southern Ohio. My friend in south eastern Indiana reports the toms are still breeding the hens in his field. One hen, three toms. They would not leave her side no matter what.

    I saw the same thing this morning. Three toms and a hen. I also heard several gobbles about an hour ago.

    Hunted yesterday in Owen Co heard 2 gobbles. Hunted Boone Co today did not hear a gobble. I believe they are with the hens.

    My son killed one yesterday at 10:20. I called one in for a friend from Florida this morning, he got busted. Got on another one that gobbled at everything but didn't want to die. I love late season, I've killed most of my oldest birds then. I said for years I was gonna start taking vacation the last week instead of the first but It's just too dang long between the last day of season and opening day the next year. I'd say in 3 more weeks if season was still in you could hit a call and they'd come running like a kid to an ice cream truck.
