It’s tempting to encourage all hunters to pass on the tradition. But lets face it, a few are shamefully unqualified to do the job.
From The Courier-Journal:
Jeff Skelton, an assistant law-enforcement supervisor for the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency, called it “perhaps the most blatant violation of the turkey game laws in recent history.”
Two Tennessee men and two juveniles have been cited on numerous charges after allegedly killing at least a dozen turkeys during that state’s recent youth turkey hunt weekend.
“The example set by the two adults is a shame by any standards,” Skelton said. “But we also believe the young hunters have responsibilities for their actions.”
