Influence of Weather on Gobbling Activity of Male Wild Turkeys

We used songmeters, which are basically like a trail camera that records all sounds, to detail gobbling activity across study sites all over the Southeast.  We found that increasing barometric pressure positively affected gobbling activity, but rain, high temperatures, and windy conditions negatively affected gobbling activity.  These findings suggest that gobbling activity should improve after weather fronts pass, conditions improve, and barometric pressure begins rising.
