I'm sure no turkey hunter would ever fudge measurements to get his name in a "book" \:D !

NWTF knows this; it's just another way of collecting some $$$.

For lesser birds, yes. For better than average birds there is more effort and verification required, although cheating could certainly still be possible.

*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.

AT - you should contact NWTF. NWTF Wild Turkey Records

You could possibly be sitting at #1 in Tennessee and in the top-5 in the US with that 5 bearded A-typical.

Here are the top 5 recorded beard lengths for A-typical birds in Tennessee. The current #1 is 14.4375" :

Longest Beard A-Typical in Tennessee, USA

1 JEFFERY A. ST CLAIR (M)
TN ( details) 14.4375" Apr 4, 1996
MARION, TN, USA M Firearm Eastern
Calls Used: Slate


I can for sure tell you I killed a three bearded bird at Ft Campbell one year that that would measure this at minimum.

It personally did not concern me what the beard measurements were until you posted this, I need to be a little more diligent now about this...but $15 a pop, that could add up quick.

Thanks for sharing the info!

Even for multi bearded birds, the "longest beard" record is for a the longest single beard. If it was the total of all beards on multi, the record would be way north of 60". There was a 9 bearded turkey killed a Lincoln County several years ago that I'm pretty sure was registered that would far exceed 17.6 total inches. I know several people, including myself, who have killed multis with 18"+ of total beards.
