Setup in the dark within 65 yds of roosted turkeys. Finally spotted one in the trees. Then they all start gobbling their heads off. 3 of them. I have the big cam and finally spot one in the trees. I film him gobbling till I'm sick of it and turn the camera off. He had an 8 or 9” beard looks to be thru full zoom. Finally i catch him on cam fkying down and i hear the others fly down too. I mack a couple small clucks and thats it. They go completely silent never to be heard again so far. Prolly an hour now. I know this area well and have never run into another hunter here ever in 30 yrs. so its not like theres huge pressure here. Thats the second time thats happened here. I dont think they saw me cuz they continued to gobble like crazy in the trees. I got awesome footage though.

I had that happen twice this year, where I was close and they shut up when they hit the ground. One time hens came in so that explained what happened. The other time, and I have wondered this before, if they were suspicious because they had no hens close to them when they roosted and their radars went off so to speak when all of a sudden they hear one close by in the morning?
