thats definitely a beard dragger :lol:
i've always heard that 12 inches was about the max a beard could grow because the toms are always stepping on it and breaking it off. that bird must have been bowlegged :D

What a beast!
There's more fun in hunting with the handicap of the bow than there is in hunting with the sureness of the gun.
