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! Guess you can call it a father / son bird

Beard about 9"-10" we forgot to measure it before it went to the freezer.

adolph, did you enter SMA's turkey contest? A beard that's 9 or 10 inches long and 3/4 inch spurs would almost certainly place in the top 10. If not you can still register before you take your second or third birds.

Congrats on a nice bird...

Good story, bird and pics. Thanks for sharing. Father-Son hunts are always great. Started letting my son tag along at 6, hunt under direct supervision at 8, and now he is 52 and I still enjoy sharing a day of hunting with him.

UPDATE, we took it out of the freezer, and it was a 10.5" beard, and 1 1/8" spurs. not too bad for our first one.
