6 bearded gobbler!

Shot the biggest turkey of my life today. Filled my second tag for the season and I havn't been so happy before.
This is the first one I shot on youth day. 9" Beard 1" hooks

So I went out by myself this morn to the same exact spot I shot my first one with and waited. I knew there was a double bearded one there but I couldn't seal the deal on him. I sat there till 8 and had no gobbling at all. Picked up the slate call and made a few clucks and he gobbled right beside me. Couldnt get the camera on him in time so I let him have it at 15 yards. I knew it was the double bearded one because someone in the first week shot at him in strut and blew the side of his fan off. I went up to him and looked and he had not 2 but 6 BEARDS. Thats when I think I started shaking the most! Added all the beards up and came up with 25 1/4" for all 6 beards. Had 1" hooks. Now I just gotta talk my dad into getting him mounted for me lol. Gonna have a hard time beating this one!
