Well this morning I nailed another bird!! This is my first spring at getting any turkeys at all and this spring I have Tagged out... Yahooey! It is not a big bird at all, as it is a bearded jake. I was heading in to set up my decoys when a hen and the jake took running. I dropped my decoys and made a clucking sound with my mouth. ( I did not have my calls ready to use.) The jake stopped and gobbled to me. Then he took off running again while I hauled up the shotgun. I clucked again and the jake stopped to gobble but never finnished it as I shot and he went down.. The jake was 12.2lbs wth both spurs being 1/2 inch and a 1st beard 4 1/4 inch 2nd beard 3 1/2 inches.. Eastern..

Your score is 12.125 + 2.5 + 2.5 + 15.5 = 32.625

I am curious if this is a double bearded jake? I have never seen a double bearded bird up close before..

One of the spurs as both are the same..
