    Had a good Saturday morning and pulled the trigger on this big guy at 7:00am (less than 30 minutes after sitting down) and was back home eating pancakes by 9:00am.

    Although he isn't the heaviest, he has the largest beard and spurs of any that I've ever shot. He has an 11" beard, 1 1/8" spurs, and weighed a little under 25#.

    I put him on the smoker as soon as I got him cleaned. He was tasty, but a little tough and that was probably due to his age.......I think that's where the term "tough old bird" comes from. I fried the heart and liver, and the kids helped me eat those for lunch yesterday.
