Maybe he didn't have a license or just likes to hunt turkey but doesn't like the meat?

Hey DPD does your Buddy have to tag the Bird as if he shot it or does tagging go against the guy that shot the Bird?

Too nice a bird to give away! I'm glad your buddy got some good eats but that is a trophy bird anywhere.
