You don't have to! Trussing mainly helps the bird keep its' shape and is handy for keeping stuffing in the cavity but you do not absolutely have to do it.

This was just asked this week but I cannot find the question, I think the general consensus was that you don't have to, it's mainly for presentation. Although, it was mentioned that trussing the turkey could help protect the breast meat from drying out. Maybe someone else will weigh in. I always tie the legs but it's really for esthetics.
