Great bird!

Borch, did he fill out the "paperwork" (pictures, measuring tape, etc.) correctly and is this how we all should submit our birds?

Wally:

Congrats on the freak! What a bird. I knew someone would take a non-typical and turn the contest on its head, but I didn't think it would be the first one entered!

I've never seen 5 beards either, but like most of the multiple-bearded birds I've run into, there's one beefy beard, and the others are just a couple of strands-per. Very cool to see.

With all that beard, did you really need to include the weight of that soaking wet cardboard box? You've got enough score the way it is. Sheesh smile.gif Kidding.

Joel,

I had the little bird weighed at locker plant that had a super duper scale that zeros out with the soaking wet box prior to weighing that wimpy little bird.

"Whimpy"?

With over 30" of beard there, I have a feeling that most of us will never shoot a bird that scores as high as that one does! Good work!

I'm just a little sorry for the length of my post........but there needed to be some "extra" pics to eliminate the questions bout the legitimacy of the "5 bearded wonder". I been on probably a hundred or so turkey kills and never ever have I seen a freak like this fella.

Interestingly he was traveling with a bearded hen as well, I was able to video tape her bout 10' from my blind about an hour prior to her return with this bad boy.

Only thing he's missing is the witnessed Submission form which I believe is in my email box at home. Once I get that posted he'll be set and I'll post a score for his bird.

If i'm missing any thing let me know. The bird has been cleaned. But this bird was the first bird Chelsey, who is in the pic with me, has called in and it was an unforgetable story.

Score = 67.82

yep, a little ways down the road. but its a small world. But i can't remeber being so excited to take a turkey. Like i said this was chelsey's first hunt and i figured it was the first day so i'd let her do the calling, with a mouth call. But this moring after they hit the ground it was slient, so we spotted this guy and two hens out in a field and i started belly crawling out to cut them off. I got within 90 yrds, and then chelsey started yelping and he turn and gobbled and came a running. I took him at about ten yards. he was so into her calling he left his hens, like i said gobbled his head off. But was so excited for her to have that experence. The first thing she said was i'm applying for a tag next year. But what a great time!!!

Pictures of spurs didn't turn out too well in the field, so I took the best of what I had from multiple photos. I found it difficult to hold the beard/spurs while keeping the ruler in the right place, while taking a good photo! I would recommend some help when you do yours.

congrats on the bird. I hope you enjoyed your nwtf weight/score as i did, it helped alot. But i didn't know if we were suppose to post that score or if Borch was going to post a score. but i vividly remeber the score, but didn't get a picture of it. So let me know if i'm suppose to score it or what to do now. But again congrats on the bird. Yesterday, was a great day to be in the trukey woods. uphere we could of done with out the mud, but it was a great day no less.

Thank you, and I think a congrats is in order for you guys! My bird was a fluke of sorts, and yours was hard earned and won.

As for the scale, I can't say enough about the thing. It's ultra convenient for the records I keep, and the cable cinch beats years of trying to put the fishing scale "hook" just the right way around the spur/leg without the whole thing spilling off.

I think Borch will score it independently, so I don't think you need worry about it.

We could've used more rain actually.....no mud whatsoever. I could've done without the wind!

      Do you have any pics of the process or finished product by any chance?
    • HugeHogChaser
      wow, this is exactly what I was looking for. Unfortunately idk what the hell i'm doing, as I have no carpentry skills LOL, but i have a buddy that builds houses, so I am sure he would have the necessary skills and tools to assist me. It cant be too hard, right!? haha. Anyways, I appreciate the information, this is GREAT. Ill be sure to touch base with you if I have any questions. Thanks again!! I have a 25 hp motor right now...really old, a chrysler 25 HP from like...the 70s or 80s. You thank that'll be enough power with the added weight?

          You can keep one Walleye 13.8- 17.7 a day. With the conservation licence you can take 2 fish out with only one over 27.6. and with a sportsman licences you can take out 4 with only one over 27.6.

      Thanks All.   No big plans this weekend and and the weather has been putting a damper on outdoor projects and choirs.    Still I might sneak out for a few hours this weekend.

      In and around narrows is where most people were fishing.  Lots of fish under 14 though.  
    • ZachD
      I guess I will have to call the dnr about the couple spots I am in question of. Ones a darn and you can easily pick them off all day almost year round

      Thanks for the great report.  We fished up there all last week, and we found shiners to be the only bait we *couldn't* get bites on. Very, very strange, but by far our best bite was on crawlers.  I think our total was something like 8 fish on shiners and 80 or 90 on crawlers (between two boats).  We didn't start fishing with crawlers until Thursday, either, so all those fish came on our last two days, with the windier Thursday being best.
    • Dale S
      Thanks guys for the informative replies. Can you also comment on the walleye limits?

      Hey Barefoot on the main lake or current areas?
