Sean,

Congrats to you and your son.......It will be a moment you both will never forget.......8-)

Hey Steve, I am sure you probably heard, but I guess this was the gobbler that Matagi had roosted for his son, but the idiot in the Jeep screwed him up on. It flew from their side of the road as we were driving past. I wish I had known that it was him parked there and I would have stopped on my way out......

Congratulations on a great hunt, that kid looks like a Rockstar now and 2 months into his hunting license he's 1 ahead of a lot of us! Kudos to Madbuck we need more guys like him!

Sean,

Kind of thought it was because of the story I had heard earlier.

What Sean lacks in hunting skills he's been making up for in being a kick ass DAD. Good job man. :D

Using the numbers you gave this bird has a total score of 64.5625, That puts it at 25 on the NWTF registry for the state of Ca. Very cool. The spurs gave it a nice boost.:appl:

Thanks Doug. I notice you and another guy I know got beards in the 11" range, but the spurs on my son's bird were longer than both. He actually really likes that part of it. he's trying to figure out how he wants them displayed..... LOL

I have a buddy who's a taxidermist who lives in Lakeside who does an incredible job with the tail the beard and the Spurs on a really nice display pretty affordable stuff too but I would put his work up against anybody's I can put you in touch with him if you want to talk to him

Sure, if you want to shoot me his info, I might look at it. I already have the tail all pinned/boraxed, and the beard and feet dried. Just need to mount them somehow.....
