    last fall i shot a gobbler with my bow. when i got down to pick him up i noticed his 4 middle tail feathers were shorter than the others, just the opposite of a jake. I was wondering why this was?

    Something happened to cause the loss of those feathers perhaps a close brush with a predator; they had not fully grown back when you killed him.
