Turkey Hunting Whether it's spring or fall doesn't matter to this bunch. Great tips on calling, bustin flocks, using blinds and more.

Default Multiple Beard Bird Down

Bird 4 had 4 beards. I repositioned 4 different times and spent 3 hours and 15 minutes fooling with this bird before he finally came in to me. Shot time 9:15 and he was at 27 steps. 4 beards, first one is 10 1/4. Second is 8. Third one is 7 7/8. Fourth one is 6 and 3/4. Both spurs are 7/8 inches and he weighed 18lbs 1oz.

Congrats!! A very nice tom indeed! It is hard to imagine a bird with so many beards!!

I hope you are not on a team... This bird could of smoked us.. lol I did a rough score for the heck of it and here is what I have figured...


Your score is 18 + 8.75 + 8.75 + 65.75 = 101.25

What a bird!!
