Longbeards only.

I'll eat a tag before shooting a jake, which has been noted, is next year's long beard. Only first timers are allowed to take jakes in these parts (man law). On the lease in Missouri, longbeards only.

"I've eaten enough tags already that i'm starting to aquire a taste for them. the ability to trick ol' tom into my shootable space is more vital to me than actually shooting him. believe me ,IF i do call him in and i can make a FOR SURE shot i will squeeze the trigger."----Mark Hay
 
Well put, Mark,....that pretty much sums up my attitude about it, too.

I think the longer you hunt for turkeys the more likely you are to 'wait' for that longbeard during the season.
From my experience it went from only enjoying the harvesting of a bird to now just enjoying doing battle with a bird.
 
I take alot of kids hunting each year so I see my fair share of jakes harvested, but as for me I like finding a boss.

Longbeards only.  My first turkey was a jake, and I have no regrets about taking him.  But, since then, I have only taken longbeards and let countless jakes walk.

Try posting up some real questions that aren't just meant to show me that you are a jerk. [:@]

I prefer to kill a longbeard in the spring, but in the fall I'll kill a jake in a hearbeat.

I have only been "seriously" hunting for the past 3 seasons and have been fortunate enough (knock on wood) to take a nice bird each season. I will only shoot long beards but with my experience (I am no expert) is that I usually only get a couple encounters with turkeys each season
