I posted this on OS .com and figured I'd do the here too. I stole the ideal from another website. Here's the scenario:

You've been playing cat and mouse with a 25 pound double bearded gobbler who is sporting 2 inch spurs. Twice you've had him just outside of shot gun range, but he won't commit and always ends up backing off.

It's also the last day of your turkey hunting vacation and the chances of you being able to come back out again are slim to none.

As the game continues the turkey crosses a neighboring property that you don't have permission to hunt and is well posted. As far as you know there is no one else hunting this sanctuary, the owner lives in another state, and your sure your chances of getting caught are pretty low.

Added spin: He's also with in shot gun range.............................

What would you do?

IMO a turkey is probably not worth it. They are a hell of a lot more beautiful to watch alive and are uglier than Greg when they are dead. Just sayin

I think the correct answer is to call him in to the line and blow his head off ;)
