Shot this Tom last weekend. Initially I thought the turkey had 2 beards, but I was shocked when I put my hands on him. Main beard was 11", three of the smaller beards were 7.5" and the shortest beard was 6.5". Personally I've never seen a double bearded turkey let alone one with 5. I'm going to do a fan mount and hang the beards underneath.

Must have been a big bird to have a 11" beard as well as the other 4.

What a trophy tom! Measure that sucker!
Every inch of each beard adds to the total length.

Vedry cool. Did you weigh him and measure the spurs?
