Though legal in Pennsylvania, this was not really by design. It simply occurred during an overlap between white-tail archery season and fall turkey season.
(A turkey happened by my stand and was fair game... you get the idea.)
Believe it or not, I've been picked off in a treestand by turkey just as often as sitting on the ground. Their eyesight is almost omnidirectional. (Being on either side of their head, a turkey's eyes afford them a much wider field of view than we have as well as an ability to literally see in different directions at the same time.) While white-tail have certainly been known to look up and bust a stand hunter, it seems as though turkey look up a lot more often and they will pick up on movement even before a deer would, in my experience. So, the thought that turkey hunting from an elevated platform may present an advantage is not one that I subscribe to, personally. But, provided it is a legal method for the area and the lay of the land lends itself to this type of ambush, I certainly wouldn't blame anyone for trying it.
