Well after 3 days of hard public hunting I got it done this mourning. The birds have been tough and this was only the 4th bird killed out of the 2- 3day public hunts they had. I herd him gobbling on the roost and walked over a mile to get within 150 yards of him. I called twice and here he came to 30 yards. 17lbs 8-1/2" beard and 1-1/4" spurs. The bird was heavy and had good spurs but a short beard. Considering it was public land and a ton of water and snakes I am happy.Thanks the pictures are bad I hunted by myself and left the camera at home.
