You guys ever seen a beard like this? I think it is beard rot in progression. It is kinda fragile but seems like it's gonna hold together. The turkey was a 4 or 5 yr. old I killed in Missouri. He was henned up and weighed 22 lbs. His spurs were 1 1/4". I had been on this gobbler the year before and he was uncallable so I got down on my belly and crawled toward him clucking every now and then and would scratch the leaves a little when I stopped to rest. He truly thought I was a new hen coming in to meet him. Everything worked in my favor. I was east of him so he had to deal with the bright morning sun glaring in his eyes. He was in a cedar thicket in a little opening that was in a little depression. It just worked out perfectly. I was on private ground and was hunting with the land owner at the time. Sometimes you have to think outside the box!
