I have been out 8 times in the last couple weeks and have been hunting public land and the turkeys have been on the private so this morning after watching about 75 hens walk by me at 20 yards, one came by with a beard and i decided i didn't want to eat the tag with xmas and everything comming up where i won't get out much more this season. It definetly tastes better than a tag.

The beard was 7 and one half inches long. It was only half the weight of an average tom but because it was unusual , i am very satisfied with the hunt and the bird. Thanks.
