I second what HM said...

Great pic ron and congrats on an awesome turkey. I've noticed that late season toms will respond quietly only letting out 1 gobble if any. Around here anyways.

yeah it can be like that, especially if its a high pressure area which this is. thats why it pays to scout and work on ones woodsmanship at all times.....or maybe i was just lucky but that isn't normal for me, being lucky.
