Default would this be unethical?

i usually hunt for gobblers with my old man. due to an injury, he will not be in the woods this spring. he has his full hunting license with 2 turkey tags. would it be unethical for me to take 2 extra birds and use his tags? is there a difference between each of us taking 2 and only me taking 4? im trying to do what is right. thanks.

i personally think yes but thats just me. is there any chance he could get out in a blind or something like that?

best of luck to you and your old man

wait let me revise this.

i feel it wouldnt be "unethical" but it would be illegal. i personally wouldnt do it but its not unethical IMO

Use technology. Rig his gun with remote control and camera. You do the work, he pushes the button. Works for me and it would be pretty cool to boot.

Well the tags are assigned to him. I don't know what your tags are like but we have our name on them and we have to sign them. So I am guessing that it is illegal to do so. It isnt really ethical either I dont think.

Sorry to hear about your dad, but no it isn't right for you to shoot some one elses birds, if there not in the woods hunting with you. Then you may as well by a licsens for your mon and other family members and friends and hunt every day of the season , same thing. I would love to do that, but it isn't right, can you get away with it maybe!

If your Father could be involved in some way, I would understand why it was done. If you mean you just harvesting twice the amount of game, I would say that's unethical !

Not a matter of ethics. It is illegal.
