Managed to get out and hunt 2 morning and 2 afternoons so far and kill 2 birds.
Here's #1 with a before and after pic. He weighed 18 lbs, 11 inch beard, and 1 5/16" spurs. Took him at 5 pm one afternoon.
Went downhill a little with bird #2. Worked him in across and open field. With all the coaxing I had to do I went ahead and shot him even though he was a younger bird.
He had a 8 3/4" beard, 1 inch spurs, forgot to weigh him but he was roughly 18-19 lbs.
So far I'm tickled with the season. Only need one more to have the seaosn limit.
