Default Double Spurred turkey

Anybody ever kill a double spurred turkey? I was wonder how rare it is. I have never seen one or even heard of one. I killed one a couple years ago. Figured you guys might know.

You have never seen one or heard of one killed, but you killed one a couple years ago? Do you mean you had never seen or heard of one until you actually killed one? They are pretty rare.

Ya other then the one I got, of course I saw it. After I got it I started asking around. No one had any info on one like it. Mine was jake like nubs under a 1.5 inch spur. The nubs were maybe a quarter inch. Ill see if I can dig up the picture.

They are very rare. I have yet to see one myself. I did shoot one a few years ago with only one spur total.. :/
