What’s Your Turkey’s Age?

Saw an article on twitter that helps determine the age of a turkey.
Just in case you ever wondered how old it was… 

Spur Length = Age of Turkey

1/2 inch or less = 1 year (jake)

1/2-7/8 inch and blunt = 2 years
7/8-1 inch = 2+ years
1+ inch and sharp = 3+ years
1 ¼ + = 4 years
Beard Length = Age of Turkey

3-5 inches = 1 year
6-9 inches with amber tip = 2 years
10+ inches = 3+ years

EDIT: Someone really likes to comment… this one caught my attention!  I’m expecting a phone call from him any day now! I have no idea who Anonymous is though…

If the gamewarden is reading this… just know that I have poached 4 longbeards in the past two weeks. Also, I’ve shot two cows at random. Just FYI :)
