Long Beard Down! Opening Day (Southern Ontario)
« on: April 25, 2016, 03:37:34 PM »
30 minutes into opening day and my tag was filled. I called him in from a 100 yards away and took the shot at 35 yards. He's a pretty nice tom at 21 1/2 lbs. with a 9 1/4" beard and 1 1/4" spurs. Now I have to help my brother bag his bird.

Was he still alive in the second photo? His head is too high for my desire. Congrats.

Looks like he narrowly averted the stunned Tom shuffle!

No, it was a stiff bird. We had a chance to harvest more than one bird that day so the pictures were taken several hours later. He had been stored in a harvest bag and the neck stayed kinked. I'm not one for too many picutres anyways.
