My ethical turkey dilema involves beating a neighbor to a turkey. I would love to read your opinions on this scenario. The Sunday before last I went into the woods very early while it was still dark in order to try to find a gobbler on the roost and set up on him. I didn't hear any gobbling on the ridge I was walking but did hear one about 500 yards away in another drainage pretty consistently. As I headed toward that drainage, I could hear another hunter hooting at the turkey on the neighbors property and the gobbler responded. The gobbler was roosted at the top of the ridge where an old county road runs (now just dirt). I headed up the drainage in the direction of the gobbling turkey and set up on a small bench on the side of the hill. As I looked up the hill, the property line is about 80 yards away to my right. The hunter across the property line was about the same distance or closer to his side of the line and he was looking up the hill to the same turkey. I ended up calling the gobbler my direction and taking him rather than the neighbor. Was I wrong to setup on that turkey and call him away from the neighbor knowing that he had set up on him first? I have felt a little bit guilty about this since. On one hand, I wasn't very courteous to the guy by intercepting his bird, but on the other hand, who was to say that the turkey would have even come toward him? Also, the turkey was roosted on my property and not his. To further complicate things, we aren't on friendly terms with this neighbor as other family members have had run ins with him involving shooting deer across the line, yelling from tree stands across the property line, etc. He isn't a very pleasant or courteous fellow according to my other family members but I have never spoken to him. Also, I did the same thing to him a few years ago with another gobbler on a different part of the property with a shared boundary, so I guess I am not doing very well with the whole courtesy aspect. A couple other caveats is that this is not a huge piece of property I have to hunt, around 150 acres. This was also only the second turkey I had heard gobbling all season—not many birds this year on our place. I would love to hear other's opinions on the matter. Was I Ok in my actions, dead wrong, or somewhere in the middle.
