    Let's see,
    Day one (Mo.) Warm, lots of gobbles, but no interest.
    Day two (still Mo) Still warm, one bird gobbled. flew down. All I could see was his head at 50 yds as he walked off all alone. When he made it to the bottom and gobbled one more time (sort of a kiss my :ass: sound) I figured I didn't have anything to lose so I gobbled back at him (pvt land, no other hunters) He did NOT like that. He came back and gobbled the whole way. Stopped at 70 yds and put on a show for the next 40 minutes but wouldn't come any closer.
    Day 3 (Indiana) Opening day, not a peep. Saw one gobbler fly up the night before but no dice on him this morning. Cold, about 35. Saw 6 deer come out of the timber about 400 yds away acting funny. Then saw what made them that way, 3 'yotes came out and moused in the tall grass.
    Day 4 (Ind) #$@#$% alarm clock failed on me and I got up too late. Went out and listened and heard one bird. I'll be back for him in the AM.
