I was behind a guy that almost got one on the way back to town from the Fish and Game club this week.  Four of them crossed the road - one running and three flying and I swear he touched the tail feathers on one of them.  If he hadn't hit the brakes I think it might have had a double.

I'm seriously jealous of your turkeys guys.  Good job on getting them.
I still think it looks a mite iffy crouching behind a bird that is spread out. :wo: :innocentwhistle: :alscalls: :alscalls: :alscalls: :alscalls:

I shot the runt this year so far.

Jake. 4" beard. Nubs for spurs. Weight guesstimation was 18-20lbs. He was a big little fella!!

Nice bird Glen.  And remember most people don't eat the spurs or the beard and unless it is a Butterball turkey larger doesn't necessarily mean better taste.
