Question, we're only counting our best bird right? Or do multiple birds count?

Yea, that's how this one was. I shot him in some burnt pines, with a good bit of burnt scrub bushes. There were probably 10 birds in a group. 2 hens, 6 or so jakes, and 2 bigger sized birds with full fans. I couldn't tell lots about them other than the 2 were much bigger than the jakes and had full fans, due to the junk bushes between me and them. But the base of the beard was abnormally large, especially for a 2 yr old and was all scraggly looking. I compared it to one of the first birds I ever shot years ago that was a "super jake" I'd say. The beard was over double the size at the base and super thick. The beard I compared it to was average skinny like a jake and real sleek and uniform. This one looks crusty.
