Saturday, the wind was howling and I never heard a gobble. My son and I covered alot of ground but never heard a peep. Monday I went out and again, not a peep. These are places I scouted before the season and heard birds everytime out but now I can't buy a gobble. Went out on some private land in Garrett on Tuesday but didn't hear a gobble until 9:30. Cut the distance on him and wound up having him come to 60 yards with a hen but never came any closer.
