Shot this Tom about 11am on Saturday. I heard him gobble as I was going back into the woods after drying out from the morning. I got set up and yelped lightly. A hen came to me first and I knew he would follow. He gobbled a couple more times before I saw him. I saw his head first and then he went into full strut. He was facing me so I waited until he dropped his tail feathers to shoot. He sure was a pretty sight when he was in full strut. The longest hair on the beard was just short of 11 inches.
