Have you heard anything else about this bird or not. I am curious to know the exact measurements and the weight.

Congratulations, Joe!
 
That's awesome. Enjoy your day in the sun, cause like you said, you'll probably never get another like that one.
 
Keep us posted on the status of the record.

Well it went official Friday.. I still cannot believe it... Now that pressure is off my chest I have even more now with getting it mounted.. Or maybe he has more because he is mounting it and worring about not screwing something up in the process.. I have numerous  mounts but this one is going to really have its own place in my trophy room..

Add my belated congratulations to the list, Joe.  That is an incredible bird you took.  Make sure you find a really good turkey taxidermist to mount that one!

Does anybody know if T&TH is going to do a feature story on this?
 
Seems like a no brainer to me, but what do I know?
 
Maybe they are waiting on getting the bird back from the taxidermist or something.
