1 1/4 inch spurs...how old is he?
 
My second gobbler this year had a 10 inch beard and 1 1/4 inch spurs. I was thinking he was a 4 year old turkey. What do you all think?

bump to .5" 1 year old .5"-1" 2 year old bird 1-1.5" three year old and up also depends on the terrain, if you have rocky terrain they may have been busted off at some point giving you a false age reading.
