Is it possible that we now have so very many hens that the gobblers are no longer having to spend as much time gobbling & searching for a hen. When he gobbles once and flies down to a bevy of them he then may occasionally shock gobble - otherwise he's pretty quiet as a breeds. I don't know if this has any merit - just wondering. I know we see tons of hens all year. I need a biologist to weigh in on this.
