#4 in the state just got back!
« on: January 24, 2016, 02:58:46 PM »
Just got my bird back from my taxidermist. It has been a long 2 years waiting but either way he did a great job. I scored it and it came out overall #4 just have not got it submitted. 5 beards on him helps a lot! Well all that being said enjoy!

Nice Tom for sure.     :tup:

What do they even measure on a turkey for the book?   I didn't even know there was a turkey book.

Congratulations on a great tom, taxidermy looks great too. I was having a hard time seeing it, so I hope it was okay to rotate.

5 Beards!!!!!! Wow! I've never shot a multiple beard bird. Did you see all the beards before you shot, Or walk up to one heck of a surprise? Side question, how rare are they? 1 in 100?

I plan on mounting a Tom someday in the fanned out strut position. Can you tell me how tall, wide that thing is?
I am in the stages of planning my man room and want to save a space for a Big Tom and would like to have a idea.
Thanks
If its brown knock it down

What a beautiful bird.  I love all the separation between the beards.  Sometimes they are stacked so close they look like a big clump.

Cool-looking bird. I've never shot one.
