I wouldn't do it, but ethical or not?? That is your choice.

I kind of see it as if you can get close enough to kill one out of a tree, then by golly you are pretty good or dam lucky so go for it.


I feel the same way.

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... ;\)

Personally, at this point in my hunting career, I would not shoot one from the roost, nor would I shoot one I walked up on in a field. And nor would I stalk/ ambush one.

I've never shot one off the roost in the past, just never seemed right to me, but I've ambushed/ stalked many successfully in the past. It's just not what I want out of a hunt anymore.

If a bird doesn't come in gobbling/ strutting and putting on a show, I'm gonna let him pass. Again, that's a personal thing, though. Killing them is secondary to the hunt itself.

I'm confident that later in my turkey hunting career I'll feel the same way. However, I'm working on only my second bird so I believe that if I'm in the previously said situation again I'll be letting the lead fly. At that time I had never really put much thought into what I'd do in that situation because I didn't think I'd be in it. Now that I've had time to think about it I'm pretty sure I won't let the next one have a free pass.

Now that my mind is made up I'll never get that close a roosted tom again.... \:D
