Default 8 Bearded Turkey Shot in Ga.

A turkey hunter from Ware County Georgia took two birds with one shot—one was a record book gobbler.

Joey Wildes of Ware County, Georgia downed two mature longbeards with one shot, and one of those heavy bird sported 8 different beards, plus impressively long spurs. Tallying the beard lengths, spur measurements, and weight should make the tom the 5th best bird ever killed in Georgia according to the National Wild Turkey Federation measuring system, reports Georgia Outdoor News.
