I wanna shoot me one of those. Anyone know what percentage of turkeys have multiple beards?

A trophy bird indeed.

Over the years, I've killed probably 25-30 turkey's. In that amount, two had double beards.

I saw one being checked in that had three but that's the most I've ever seen in person.

I'd say with confidence, a 4-5 bearded turkey is very rare.

My wife shot a triple beard with 1" spurs last week.
She was pretty pumped.:D
I told her it was like shooting a B&C deer or elk.


I have added pictures of hers. We did not notice it being a triple until we cut the beards off.

It is not real rare to have a double beard, but rare enough they are trophies. 5 beards is real rare, really nice bird you got congrats.
