congrats on your bird....there have been several multi-bearded record birds taken here in georgia. i will try and get some stats on them.
in all the years of chasing these turkeys, i have only taken two and they both were taken the same year, the first was from kentucky, then the second one was here in georgia the last day of the season....just like a non-typical deer, the genetic make-up, i would think be similar to the genetic make-up of multi-bearded birds. i'm really not sure what causes it.
