Have'nt hunted turkeys in 20 years, birds didn't want to play, so had to resort to a stock behind a Pretty boy decoy. Aint nothing like getting with in 20yards of a turky in a open feild. Will post pics of the final smoke in a couple weeks

Beard was 10", had some beard rot but was still pritty thick and weighed 17#, and his chest had the hide wore off off it. And the spurs was almost none existant, about 3/4" and round tipped. I know it was a small bird, but they would not respond to calls at all, if you wasn't in their line of travel someway, it was'nt going to happen.
