Last time I heard it was at 20 yards and I stone cold missed that turkey! It broke something inside me when that happened. He came in blowing my hair back!

Sure wish you could, man. It is life changing. I'll keep calling them in for you to shoot though, don't worry about that.unlike JR1, I started turkey hunting in 1989 at the age of 38 and sadly, I have never heard a turkey drumming. I can hear spitting, but not drumming!
Did you kill him on the ground or on the roost?Last year I had a jake come in and try to intimidate my decoys from 5pm until flyup. He just kept spitting drumming, and strutting non stop.
It was a cool opportunity to hear all the noises up close and personal.
Um... posts like this don’t really help with our Anti recruitment campaign...Best sound in the woods in my opinion. Just nothing else like it at all! Get my pulse going everytime.
How far can you all usually hear it? In ideal conditions, I've heard the spit and drum from 100 yds, but under typical conditions it is usually 50 to 60 yds before I can pick it up.
I'll be heartbroken when I can't hear that sound anymore.
