What was the beard lenght of your turkey?
Best i got is just shy of 12", but i never fired a shot this spring. They screamed on the roost and got deathly silent on the ground.:confused2: No biggie, just means more for next year.:wink:
i called 1 in for my buddie opening day had a 8 incher ..
Mushroom hunters were pissin me off so I thought it safer for everyone if this dog stayed on the porch. :confused2:
My biggest was a little over 11.
dont turkey hunt myself but my son got one with 10 and a 1/4 beard.weighed 23 lbs.
Four years ago I bagged one on opening day, had 11 7/8". It looked like a giant paint brush. This year I got one that had one strand that measured 10 1/2", but the rest of the brush was 9 1/2", but it was a thick one.
The longest I ever got was 10 1/2 I think,it was stolen,so I cant check my memory:wink:,but since then I do have a 10 incher on the wall.
This year i got two 10s and a 8. Had an awesome year. Year before last i shot a 4 bearded turkey with 28 in total beard, Missouri turkey hunting is awesome!
longest beard on any turkey i ever shot was just under 10 inches. he was in real bad shape (probably why I got close to him) and weighed 16 pounds. toughest damn bird i ever ate! i have been giving the turkeys a break these last two seasons, but after them messing up several stalks on deer last season, i am going to be a turkey killin fool this coming season.
I know how that is I had my 10 1/2 stolen by I asume a MOUSE:angry: I never did find that one. still makes me mad when I think about it. O-well I guess we live an learn.(dont leave it in the garage this spring )
This is spring 06's bird. 20#, 7/8" spurs, 9-1/2" beard.
My best bird had a double beard of 11" and 9". My sons best bird was a triple beard of 10"-7"-5"....nice birds,but the real mother load was the needle sharp spurs at 1 3/8" and 1 1/2". We take the spurs and are making a necklace that we hang on the wall...really looks impressive.:big_smile:Love turkey hunting in Western Kentucky
