I've told this before ,,,but I don't mind telling it again .
Prior to this past fall season I heard a gobbler yelping from the roost . You've no doubt heard an old jack do his 'HEE HAW' . That old gobblers yelp was not unlike the 'HAW' .
HAAWW, HAAWW , HAAWW. He did it quite a few times before he flew down . In my own experiences , he is the slowest and most drawn out yelper I've heard .
First time I heard a cluck I thought it was a super hen of course . At that time I didn't know gobblers made any sounds other than spit n drum , gobble and PUTT!
Recall in your own mind a particular hen you watched or listened to as she clucked . Now imagine her holding a megaphone in front of her beak , with her left wing and an empty five gallon bucket in front of the megaphone with her right wing . Coarse , deep and hollow is the way I describe it .
Had seven gobblers roosting in a circle around my deerstand 2-3 years back . One old longbeard was within 30 yards . Three were about 45-50 yards . When they began to tree call , had I not been looking right at each bird , I would have estimated them to be all hens . They were that high pitched in their chatter .
I just get a kick out of a good feathered show.[:D]
