Is the size of a gobbler's noggin indicative of anything in particular, such as age or diet, or is it simply genetics? My ol' man and my best friend killed almost identical gobblers on the opener... both sported 1-5/16" spurs and 9-1/2" beards. However, Dad's bird had a head that was the size of a softball, while my friend's gobbler had a much leaner head.
This is simply a curiosity that I've noticed before with some the birds brought back to camp over the years. This isn't the first time we've noticed differences in heads.
