I wanted to get some opinions about the turkey I shot last year, so if you have time, read my story and post a reply. Last year I set up on a spot that had produced a nice tom the year before. It was on top of a ridge that the birds climb to make their evening fly-up a little shorter. Towards sunset, a big tom and about six hens started moving toward me up the ridge. The tom was really showing off for his harem. Well, like the year before, the hens flew up first, and the tom was still on the ground. I knew some soft calling should bring him in to my decoys. I yelped very soft twice to get his attention, and then I shut up. Sure enough, he started strutting in to my decoys. He was at about twenty-five yards and still strutting. I was waiting for him to close the ten yards to my decoys for a perfect shot...BUT! At twenty-five yards, he came out of strut, tucked his feathers, and began to fly up to his roost. I couldn't believe it. I thought to myself, "no you don't." When he was about twenty feet off the ground, I dropped him out of the air with a single shot. He never made it to his limb. I have never heard of anyone doing this before and my question is, what do you think about the ethics of a shot like this? I would never shoot one out of its roost, but I felt like I did everything I needed to...I called him in to within twenty-five yards and didn't shoot only because I wanted a closer shot. I think I'd do it again if the situation arose, but I'd like some opinions anyway. Thanks for reading, and feel free to post a reply to my question.
