Funny story behind this one actually. To make a long story short, I missed the running gobbler and hit the still hen. Their paths happened to cross at the wrong time for her. When I saw that the monster longbeard kept running and the hen was left lying, my heart sank a bit...until I approached her. What are the chances?

I am seeing more and more of them around here. Most of which aren't nearly that size. Looks like if I'd have been shooting at her, I woulda missed anyway. Dumb luck lol

That's a good hen right there, I'd be bummed about the longbeard but definitely glad to get the bearded hen.

That's the longest beard I think I've ever seen on a hen. Hate you missed the gobbler but that is a cool hen.

Awesome man. Not to hijack but similar thing happened to me last year. Was waiting out big boy, had fallen asleep in my blind, came to, saw the bird with the beard, focused on the beard, and boom. That's a nice beard on a hen you've got
