Just got my tom back from last springs hunt. His tail looks rough because he was fighting 2 other birds right before I shot him. He's got a thick 11.25" beard, and 1" spurs. He weighed 23 lbs. This is my first tom, I got a jake the 2 previous seasons.

Thanks. He has all-thread running up the lower leg, and he pinned the leg joint. I asked the same question. :supergrin:

Thank you. I was pretty excited. He, and 3 other toms came in to a jake decoy mating a hen decoy. They were not happy about that jake. :shocked:
