Yesterday, while out scouting at daybreak, I heard a gobble in the nearby woods. Then another. That's right. Autumn turkeys gobble; even late-summer birds. On the roost and on the ground. I know, some of you have heard differently. Talk is cheap. Experience pays dividends. If they're fall jakes, they sometimes gobble after making a kee-kee-run, tagging it right on the end of that call. I've scattered autumn longbeards too only to have each one gobble hard on their return to the flush site. I defy anyone to tell me that's not just as exciting as a spring hunt.
