Nice turkey Charlie. It's always nice to get an older bird. They don't get that way by being stupid. My bird had strange spurs. Only about 3/4" long, but blackened about 1/2 way down and sharp and pointy. I haven't seen one here in KY like that before. Normally a bird like this would have 1'-1 1/4" spurs...The season in KY was really screwed up. Locals told me they saw them breeding in Feb. The hens were almost all on the nest, with NO yelping going on. If a hunter yelped the turkeys all ran the other way. A light purr and soft cluck was the only apparent occassional attractor. Waiting to see status here in MA, and in ME. Safe shooting. Jim...
