    Since I didn't take my digital camera with me the day I shot this bird, I thought I would post the tail and beard mount. The tail measured 29 inches across the straight bottom side and the three beards went 10.5, 4.5, and 4.0 inches. The spurs went 1.25 inches. My son-in-law called it into gunshot range from over a quarter mile away. He also mounted the tail and beards for me. Looking forward to fall turkey season in October.

    Nice mount. I do not have a picture of my mount, but if you check out my profile you can see my bird. Only one beard, 11 1/2, 1" spurs. My brother in law and I stalked him. Couldn't get him off the hens.

    Congratulations on a fine bird. 33" is the biggest tail fan I've witnessed personally. God bless.
