WE called them Toms back in the 80ís heydays, and do so today.

Modern TV hunters might not know that, probably why you have not heard of it.

Wasn’t asking you anything, just asked the guy we’re he was from. And like always I think your full of crap lol. None of the Primos videos,Knight and Hale or any of the early videos used the term. Never heard Ben Lee or any of the southern hunters use it. All these were Turkey hunters back before and during your favorite 1980’s era. Kenny Morgan probably the most famous La hunter called the Gobblers or Longbeards in his book from 1987. Only place I’ve seen it was hunting stories in old magazines from people up North. I’ve hunted all over the south for decades and never heard anyone from the south use the term. Out west a “Tom” is a mountain lion, the only ones using the term for Gobblers was Yankees or nowadays from YouTube ie The Hunting Public etc.
Not sure why the question would upset anyone?
