WORLD SLAM WITH NEW WORLD RECORD

Postby gouldshunter » May 29th, 2012, 7:14 pm

I thought taking a World Slam in less then a year was a feat in itself but I was fortunate enough to get a new World Record 4 possibly 5 spurred bird with my Slam. The new record measurements for the four spurs are Left side = 1 15/16 & 1 1/16, Right side= 2" & 14/16" If you look closely you can see a possible fifth spur. I'm told that four spurs are very rare and the length of the third and fourth spurs are even rarer.

Thank you. This bird was taken in Campeche Mexico, the Yucatan peninsula.

Congratulations on the gobbler and the numerous records associated with it. That is an awesome gobbler with 5 spurs!
