if you look between the lower 2 beards it looks like rot or somthing that might be seperating the beards. but im not sure what defines a seperate beard

can't tell if the bottom beard is separated at the base or somehow broke / rotted in middle...
either way, great beard...
should be able to tell when you cut it off...

Since you believe that you might have the state record if its really 3 bearded, I'd have someone from the DEM check it out. They have to have a turkey biologist that can make the call for you. Either way, not a bad position to be in! Great bird either way!
