Well, not exactly, but a painful puncture wound nevertheless. I killed this one at 10 minutes til 3 this afternoon, and while shifting him back and forth trying to carry him, a spur penetrated the fleshy part of my left index finger. Hurt and bled pretty good. This one had 1 1/4 inch spurs, curved and very sharp. Also a 10 1/2 inch beard. Us old guys need protection(from ourselves, mostly).

Always pick them up between the spur and the foot, or use a carry rope.

Sorry about your hand but congratulations on the bird. \:D

I'll take a jabbing once in a while to get a good set of spurs. Good bird.

You know, the older you get the more loogsy goosy you get about routine chores(I've never been much of a glove wearer, and my hands look like I have been a pit bull trainer all of my life). I wouldn't know how to act if I didn't have one or more wounds on my hands at all times! lol
