which would you shoot....One has a 4 inch beard that has brown tips indicating broke from dry rot or what ever it is ...so its clearly not a jake as the fan is full to....the other is not thin bearded, but not a rope yet at about 9-10 inches.

Both are close enough to see the spurs when they lift wings enough. Short broke beard bird has 1 and 1/4 inch spurs ...long beard bird has 3/4 spurs... I have had three people tell me I should have shot the long beard... for me its about the spurs.

nevertheless yesterday was a great day..I have gone twice and yesterday was the first I connected with...been to busy doing crap around the house to go. I think I will get out one more day or two and maybe get my son out a day...

anyhow here it is
