How long does it normally take for another gobbler to move in and obtain dominance once the dominant tom has been taken out of that area?

My hunting buddy and i were wondering the same thing since he had taken a nice tom about a week ago. It was quiet for a few days (about a week I guess). He was driving by the spot where he had taken his bird and WHOA! -there was another tom in the same area. I am guessing but I think if there is a good population of birds in your area--it won' t be long before another one comes in. I guess also that if the hens haven' t subjected to much disturbance they won' t go far either. After all, it' s the hens that bring the toms in anyway.

I`ve seen other gobblers move in the same day. If there`s lots of hens around then there`ll be a couple of other birds just waiting for the oppurtunity.
