Congrats to the young man, and what a tom!  Rare to see those fully developed spurs on birds less than 4 years old.
As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.

So, I'm not a turkey expert.  How do you know the age of the bird?
Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes.  That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

that bird is a four year.  Awesome tom, congrats!  I've shot about 18 or so toms down there.  General rule of thumb is 1/2 is a two year 3/4+to 1 is a three year old.  A bird with 1 1/4" is for sure a four year old.
