The unkillable Maine longbeard is still gobbling this late in the spring season, but often at a distance. He's cagey, and not necessarily with the hens before (or after) fly-down time. It's as if his survivor radar is on extreme prejudice; maybe still he's just shifting into summer mode as the spring season winds down. Maybe it's hunting pressure too. You see, not only have my two buds been hitting the place, but a number of other hunters as well.
