- You're a young hunter or someone new to the turkey hunting tradition.
- You've traveled far, spent some hard-earned cash, and have an extra tag to fill—or haven't filled one yet.
- You've had a great hunt, and tangled with an unseen and vocal turkey you first pegged as an adult gobbler, but when he pops into view, it's a juvenile male making like he's 10 pounds heavier and a year or two older.
- You're trying to arrow your first wild turkey with archery tackle.
- You're chasing turkeys in an area where a hunter has killed the dominant longbeard, a bird that's passed on his genes to the hens he's been keeping company with, and there are some jakes available.
- You're hunting late in the season—maybe the last day—and a band of juvenile male turkeys comes running to your calls. Fall, when you wouldn't think twice about taking a young gobbler, is just four months away. Why not pull the trigger?
