PG, I don't shoot jakes because that is my decision, shooting a jake means nothing to me. Do I have some petting zoo to hunt in....NO..Most of the birds I kill are on public land. My slam has been taken on public land. I wish all states would follow Mississippi's rule of no jakes( my opinion ). I do find it very amusing that most of the die hard no DECOY guys find it OK to kill jakes in the spring and just whatever in the fall... Amazing !
In my eyes hunting is about "hunting" not shooting or killing. There will be days that I might pass on a jake and other days that I would be happy to take him. I gauge my decisions on first of all legalitly and second of all on the experience. I hunt on my own terms and I hope the rest of you do the same.
If he comes to my calling I will help him make it through to the next year.. [:D]
