Let's see some spur pictures. Long thick beards are nice but nothing gets me more excited than rolling a bird over to look at his spurs. I'll take 20 stub bearded birds with 1.5 spurs any day over 100 12 inch bearded birds with 1 inch spurs. I haven’t broken 1.5 but have hit 1 3/8 several times. Here's a couple:

I have only killed 2 spurred birds so far...

This one is from monday morning. I think they're pretty good but of course my goal now is 1.5"

They are 1 1/8" and 1 3/16" if I am not mistaken

1 1/2 spur & the other was broke. Killed last year in middle TN the morning of the Tn & Al tornadoes (Birmingham). Craziest weather i've ever hunted in, but it sure paid off.

Big Gun asked me to chime in on this one. Haven't posted this one in many years. I remember getting to show this one off at the Vous one year, as I had picked the mount up at the taxidermist on the drive out there.

I can't remember the exact stats, but I believe one was 1 7/8 and the other might have been 1 15/16.

Killed in Carroll County, can't remember the year. Gotta once again thank Monster for helping me get this one.

Best TN spurs I have ever seen. I saw where they were ranked/tied for #4 in NWTF records (length of spurs for TN bird). Pretty darn impressive! Thanks for sharing Big Al.

I think when I actually registered it the bird tied for 1st in typical spur length. Its dropped considerably since then.

I was thinking last time I looked it was still tied for 2nd. Guess I'll go take a peek.

IMO, that is the best mount to showcase the spurs. Mount looks great. Who mounted him, John Beard at Birds Only?

It was mounted by a taxidermist that lived near Parsons or Henderson. At the moment I can't remember his name, but short afterwards he opened a sporting goods store in Parsons. I don't think it made it.

Mark Driver, Tennessee River Taxidermy, he has mounted five birds for my family. He does a great job. Only uses freeze dried heads not the fake heads.

That's him. He did a couple of birds for me and did a great job. I would have remembered his name.....eventually.
Thx

There are some dang good spurs on here boys!

My Indiana bird this year didn't have the longest spurs I've killed but it had the sharpest and the blackest. I had never killed a bird with pure black spurs before.

He is on my lease
in Decatur Co.
His Taxidermy skills have come a long way
Your mount looks 100 x better than the one he did for me

Some awesome spurs posted. I will never get tired of turning a gobbler over to see what the spurs look like. If I saw a few of these spurs on a bird I just shot I would probably pass out!
