I'm in the woods now: no gobbles, no birds, no gunshots.

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


I have seen a bunch of Jakes, even killed a few, and I have never ever seen a jake with a 7 inch beard. If those birds had 7 inch beards, then they literally had to tuck the beards under the bodies to hide them in the picture.

I'm not trying to call anyone out or act holier than thou, but the birds absolutely look like jakes and if so then your BIL and friend shouldn't send pictures of them, and probably wouldn't want them posted on the internet if they did. Just my unsolicited and likely unwanted advice.

Look like jakes to me as well. I am not calling anyone out or anything, but I have seen and been around lots of turkeys. A 7 inch beard is probably an adult bird anyways.

To me taking a picture of a longbeard gobbler without the beard is like taking a picture of a buck and leaving the antlers out, whether its a spike or 10 pointer.

While I agree, I have seen literally dozens of pictures of old birds that did not showcase their beards, many times because of the way the hunter chose to pose with his kill, and sometimes solely by mistake.

I think I made a mistake there. I actually have pictures of gobblers with no beards showing. And I don't really compare it to a buck. Turkey hunting is more about the hunt to me, and as long as its a mature gobbler, 2 years or older, I shoot him.
