Default Mississippi public land

Decided to ride to Mississippi and make a quick hunt. This ole bird gobbled about 6 or 7 times on the ground and I played him a sweet tune that he couldnít resist. At 15 steps I let him hold an Apex.

Nice Mississippi bird! Latest reports I am getting from Mississippi have been good. It was very quiet when I was there opening weekend.

I have heard one gobble each from two way off birds on the same morning out of a total of seven days hunting. Same areas I have hunted for years with reasonable success. Something is afoot and it causes me great concern.

Congrats on the public land bird.
Birds have been tight lipped this year in Mississippi and have been staying on roost late.

Silvestris what are your thoughts on the problem? Seems like we are saying the same thing every year. Drove 2 hours to a friends lease in Ms. and while standing next to a fresh gobbler track did not hear a peep. Was he out of hearing doubtful dead possible.

I don't have a clue. My guess is that the populations are way down, way down, and that what survivors are there are really lying low.
