I walked up on a good sized tom and a hen this afternoon in Rockaway. The tom had his back to me and was all fanned out. He never saw me. The hen was on a ledge down below. I didn't see her until the tom had moved on and I walked over to where he was. I knew she was there somewhere because of his fanning but she stayed down low out of sight until I walked up. I'm new to judging turkey size but this was a pretty big bird! I don't have a clue in pounds but he was a lot larger then the hen and she wasn't tiny! His beard was long I'm guessing between 8-10 inches. Now I'm really pumped to hunt turkeys!
