Would you shoot a 12PT 180 class buck laying down in his bed broad side?


I'm torn on this one. I won't shoot one off the roost, it's just my personal choice, but I also think a gobbler is at a huge disadvantage when it comes to "sleeping in its bed". From what I have been lead to believe, those birds use flight from the roost in the poor morning light as a last option, due to less than desirable visibility.

Now, a bedded 180 class buck has the advantage of sight, smell AND that maturity that comes along with age. If I was able to stalk up on a mature, bedded buck, I would consider myself wiley enough to accomplish such a feat.

Just my personal opinion, which really isn't worth that much.

I know if you get close enough to see him on a limb, and see his beard, either shoot him or go after another bird. Because you will not kill that bird if you let him fly down.
He has already seen you and even though he might still be gobbling he will fly down the other way and shut up just like you said that one did.

I never have shot one off a limb and I never have killed one that I could see he had a beard.

Yup I would say blast em! Had a gobbler roosted yesterday evening and got about 30 yards from him. He had his head tucked and I was waiting for him to raise up. A truck came down the highway and he was wide awake then. he pulled his head up and it was behind a tree so when I stepped back to shoot he flew. But you better believe he was gonna get blasted.

Ethical was back when Hunters would Call turkeys to within 40 yards or less to shoot.

Ethical was when birds and deer were killed for food and not for the sport or thrill... ;\)
