Default Double Bearded Tom

I took this Tom earlier this year in northern Illinois.
Temps were in the low 20s that morning, I was done in less than an hour. I was working a Tom back and forth at distance when this guy came in quietly behind me.

Nice Tom Bucktail! I got a double beard tom earlier this Spring and it was a first for me. Couldn't see the 2nd beard until he was down. 1st time I've ever got a double beard. Are they more common in your state?

I had no clue it had 2 beards until it was over. That is the first multi-beard I've seen or heard of around here. That's a Tactacam at the end of the barrel with a fancy camo tape job. I did get it on video, that was my first attempt using it.
