He shot a turkey with the 2nd longest beard ever recorded by the NWTF.

Cody May, Texas Eastern, 2007: 22.5 inches
Charles Allison, Tennessee Eastern, 2009: 20 inches
Robin Shiver, Florida Osceola, 2008: 19.125 inches
Robert Tremblay, Virginia Eastern, 1998: 18.l25 inches
Cameron Richardson, Missouri Eastern, 2011: 17.9375 inches

I just noticed that it says "length is the total measurement of all beards". However, it does not say how many beards each of these turkeys had.

I need to have some "officially" measured then, I called one up for a guy last year that had 5 beards...prob 16" total. I have seen some I think would go over 20" but not sure.

The length used for final scoring ((Beard length x 2) + (spur length x 10) + total weight) is the total of all the beards on multi-bearded birds, but that is not the length they use for "longest beard" record. If they did, it would be in the 60"+ range.

It says "Typical", so I'm assuming all those were single beards.

Charles Allison shot his turkey in Fayette, TN.

There are 2 Tennessee birds in the Top 15. The other was shot by Edward Landreth in McNairy, TN in 2001. It had a 17 inch beard.

A total score of 88 for an A-typical bird would put you at #61 on the list in Tennessee.

The NWTF records are cool to look at, but ultimately useless. Very few people actual register birds, and those that do arent always reliable. You have to be a NWTF member to register a bird, and I dont think there are official measurements taken. I think it just requires your word and a witness (who also must also be NWTF)

It costs $15 per bird to register it. The hunter and any required witnesses must be NWTF members, so I can see why many birds would not be registered. So far 19,000 birds have been recorded.


*All Easterns, Rio Grandes, Merriam’s and Gould’s subspecies turkeys weighing more than 22 pounds, Florida subspecies over 20 pounds or Ocellated turkeys over 10 pounds must be weighed to the nearest ounce on scales inspected and certified as accurate for trade by the state department of agriculture. A weight coupon or signed document must be presented for proof and an additional witness also is required. Beards measuring more than 12 inches must have additional witnessing and the application must include a photograph showing measurement. Spurs measuring over 1.5 inches must have additional witnessing and applications must include photographs showing measurement. Please include a picture if your bird has multiple beards.
