Do I need a Turkey Permit to tag along?

I want to tag along with a buddy on a turkey hunt just to see how it's done and take some pictures. Do I need a Turkey permit in case I get checked? I'm not going to bring a gun, but we'll be sharing a blind and my buddy will have a shotgun. Technically I feel like I don't need one, but will I look shady to FWC?

    Private land or WMA, If it is a WMA then I think you will need a WMA permit. As long as you do not have a gun, I think that is all you need.

    As long as you are just observing and not actively engaged in the take of a turkey (e.g., calling, setting up decoys, holding the gun, etc.) you would not need a turkey permit.

    But, if he is on a WMA, then he must have a WMA stamp, as surfman said. You have to have one of them to do anything on a WMA.
