I loaded the video from the phone to the computer but it is in a different format and won't download.

I went to 3 other spots but did not hear any more gobbles. I did see one small flock of turkeys while driving.
Dat looks like a nice spot! My cousin will likely be in the area next Saturday with his daughter. If I don't have to work I will probably go as well and go do some listening

Other hunters is a BIG concern in that area where these 2 toms roosted.

Last year, I had found a Tom roosting in a somewhat "out of the way" spot, but weather was a big factor. I set up on this bird about 150 yards from his roosting spot and waited......

Just as it was getting to be GOBBLE TIME, the storm front was getting close. When it started thundering a few miles away.... I started getting nervous. After the third clap of thunder, I moved to his STRUT area which was much closer to where I parked that morning.

The thunder had stopped...... but the weather [or something] caused the tom to not gobble, I did not hear him fly down nor did he come to my calling.

We went up to da camp in Tensas to tackle a few tasks. The grass didn't get cut as I only mowed about 10ft before the mower and I slid into the river.
