It may just be the way the fans are laying and the way they took the picture, but those look like jakes. I dont judge anyone for shooting jakes normally, but I dont think its legal to shoot jakes in MS. May want to check on that.

Assuming they were taken legally, congrats to them. I love the rule that beards must be 6" in MS for adults to kill them. If you're 15 or under, you can kill any male bird in MS, regardless of age.

I think this may be the case here. Their big heads look like old birds to me.

I agree with the big head thought, but the fans definitely look staggered. And I've never seen anybody take the post-hunt-cell phone-picture-to-send-to-everyone without displaying a beard(s). Maybe I'm wrong, and if so congrats to the hunters.

I thought the same thing when I first saw them.

The heads look like jakes to me. The one on the left looks like to have feathers running up the back of the head. The one on the right looks just to be swollen from being shot/stepped on. Tail fans also look like jake fans. No beards flopped out to see.

Maybe they are 15 year olds that skipped school like I used to. Good job to them.

They were both legal birds if I understand the rules right. Both birds have beards just over 7
