Legal or Not

Legal or Not

Say you had two legal turkeys in front of you, and you killed both with one shot, would it be legal? If it were not legal, would it be very smart to put the picture in the newspaper ? :shock:

Well the rules say 1 adult gobbler per day so 2 in a day ain't legal.
I would be proud of killing 2 in 1 shot but wouldn't put a picture in the paper stating such :D

I had a chance to kill a big gobbler on a Ms WMA several years back but never pulled the trigger because this ole gobbler had 4 hens with him and they where directly behind him the entire time he was in my shooting window. I have hunted turkeys for 4-5 years and have never killed one, this was my best opportunity, but thinking about killing a hen or two along with that ole gobbler kept me from pulling the trigger. Thats a hunt that haunts me to this day. Once I actually kill a gobbler I hope the pain will ease.

No I didn't see it.

We had a kid on a youth hunt last year at our club kill 4 turkeys in one shot. He was shooting at a jake in some tall grass and didn't see the other birds on the grass behind him, BOOM, 4 dead turkeys.

I bet that turned into an extreme example of "Know your target & surrounding area" :(

This reminds me of the article that appeared in one of the MS. papers showing all of the snakes a guy had killed at his club. The only issue was that there is a "reptile bag limit" of some sort....if I remember right. I think I saw this on the MDWFP forum....I never would condone doing anything illegal....but man!!!!!

A man posted a pic of son who killed two with one shot at the WDAM news channel website. It is the pic #1 on the following link:
http://www.wdam.com/Global/category.asp?C=95594

Proud of the kid, but the dad does not need to publicize it. Also, those pictures are sent to a WDAM website and then posted, you would think that they would not post an illegal bird.

Welcome Brettkusm.. You don't by chance know bt58 on this website do ya? he goes to USM too.

What is probably happening is, these folks who post those photos, do not have a clue as to what the laws are regarding turkey hunting :)
