New State Record (female hunter category) Turkey

This is the new state record gobbler for female hunters that I mounted. It was taken by a 13 year old girl last spring. A friend of mine measured it and he said there was a pretty big gap between this bird and the old record. 25#, 12" beard, 1 9/16 spurs.

Wow! Thats one heck of a bird!

A haiku is just like a normal American poem, except it doesnt rhyme and is totally stupid.

Wow! Awesome bird and a great mount too!! Were both spurs the same length? The left looks much shorter, but it may be the angle the pic was taken?

Iím a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it.

I really like the mount. Great job.

The older I get, the stronger gravity becomes.
