How was he in trouble, not to play devils advocate but if he didn't have a gun in his hands and hadn't killed or shot at anything what's the beef?

The terms of his probation prohibited "hunting" and "hunting" has a very very broad legal definition under TN statute (See above). It seems to me, right or wrong, that he's getting the book thrown over a technicality. Dont get me wrong, from everything ive ever heard, he's a first class doucher, but this seems excessive.

He broke the law. He was assisting in taking an animal and in TN you have to have a license. Especially calling Turkey, driving deer, etc..

From the TN regulations regarding turkey hunting:

"A licensed turkey hunter, who has filled his
bag limit or does not possess a valid permit
for a quota hunt, may accompany another
turkey hunter who has a valid permit (except
on WMAs where prohibited) and assist him
in calling, but may not have a gun or bow in
his/her possession."

That says that the hunter assisting must be licensed. Nealmeally was correct and is exactly why Spook got busted. Again.

I think more light will be shed on this at a later time by TWRA,
its more that just calling and baiting, most won't be shocked

He was calling a bird to the gun. Does it really matter who is pulling the trigger at that point? If you are calling in an animal so it can be killed, you are participating in the hunt; i.e. hunting.

When I kill turkeys off of AEDC the wardens tell me I can go call with no gun... So how is this any different from him?

I am sure it didnt help his cause that he had the place baited for his buddies........There were also many pics of him and the Titans players duck hunting back in the winter as well...
I would say he wasnt taking his probation very seriously, maybe he will now...
Folks like him are whats wrong with hunting today...I cant believe a true outdoorsman would even try to defend his actions.
...and I would asy there are some on here that may ought to read the hunting guide a little closer before they end up in trouble.
