I have been blessed to live in Tennessee where there is no shortage in turkeys. Only longbeards for me. Ive never shot a jake in all my years turkey huntin and never will. I guess if had to kill a jake I would want to make it sporting so I would have to use a stick or choke them to death with a cordless phone. LOL jakes are just to easy for me I like a lil bit of a challenge.
come on spring time!!!

Well, being that this will be my first season hunting turkey. If a jake happens to wander into range, I'm not sure I'd be able to let him walk away.

I will 2nd what Trkynut says, There is nothing wrong with shooting a Jake especially until you pack a few birds home with you.

Longbeards only never a jake but I won't shoot either in the fall because they are more fun in the spring.
