Here's Our Opening Day Bird! My dad shot it with his crossbow, it flew off with the arrow stuck in it. We found it 4 hours later, and I finished it off with an arrow from my compound. Crazy Morning! These birds are tough!
Beard about 9"-10" we forgot to measure it before it went to the freezer.
Spears forgot to measure.
But it did weigh in at 25lbs
A couple of Florida birds
My son's 8 1/2 inch beard
My older brother 9 3/4 inch beard
My younger brother 11 1/2 inch beard
Trying to get my daughter a bird now, she missed last weekend ( her first miss, she was upset )
