26.3 seems to be a big bird.  How heavy do a wild one get?
Good job.

Good job.

Average is about 17-18 pounds.  The world's record for heaviest turkey was killed in Kentucky in 2015 and weighed 37.6 pounds.  It was taken near the LBL on a private farm.

Thanks guys!
He's by far my heaviest I've ever seen.
I'm starting to think I'm hunting on a former nuclear site! It grows Hugh animals.
Pat I really like that pic also! I'm going to do a 8x10 and hang it in the house.
I saw that old dead tree next to were he died and thought wow!! What a great place to take a photo and capture this beautiful birds final moments and show respect to him.
