I generally don't mention any roosted bird to another Turkey hunter unless that person is going with me to that spot to team up on that bird or it is roosted on a piece of property I am not likely to go back to any time soon.
He did you wrong and broke the code of trust between the two of you. It did teach you not to tell that s.o.b. anything in the future. I might be tempted to send that guy on a wild goose chase after another (imaginary) Gobbler in the middle of the busiest public hunting land in the area just to teach him a lesson.
That is like taking someone to a favorite fishing spot one day, then returning the next day to find your "buddy" with a boat-load of his friends parked on it wearing the fish out before you even get there.
Shame on him. I don't know how he could even look you in the eye after that. If you had not said anything about it, he would still not know where that bird was hanging out. That was not "your" bird, but it surely was not his bird to take from you. What he did was about as low down as it gets.
(did he groin kick you when he showed you the picture?...that's about what it would be like)
Just how I see it.
