Well men I am on the board. I was fortunate to drop a hefty longbeard this past Saturday. (opening Day in PA). 9 and 3/4 '' beard and 7/8 and 15/16 spurs. Word of advice, if ur sitting on a tripod stool from walmart make sure that your well braced. When the 3 1/2" win hi density Elite went off the back of the stool went down and so didn't I. It was quite the site.I almost shot a hole in my new blind. lol well good luck to all of you slayers out there. I will start my quest for #2 this wednesday.
