    Include the turkey's stats and your team name along with the pictures. I figure 1 thread will be easier than the team thread from last year. Please keep this to just entries. Moderators, could you make this a sticky?

    5 pictures will be required to enter a bird:
    -a picture of the hunter with the bird
    -a picture that includes a 2014 tag or a piece of paper with the date on it if killed in another state
    -a photo of each spur with a ruler or tape measure
    -a photo of each beard with a ruler or tape measure showing where it meets the skin, Multi-bearded birds will require the 2014 tag or piece of paper with the date on it

    ***all pictures must be taken with beard and spurs attached to the turkey***

    Any discrepancies in pictures can be reviewed by a member of another team for verification

    Some shotty measuring going on for sure:wave:


    [​IMG]Measure each spur. Spurs must be measured along the outside center, from the point at which the spur protrudes from the scaled leg skin to the tip of the spur. Add both spur measurements and multiply the combined length of the spurs by 10. This is the number of points you receive for the turkey’s spurs.




    Measure the beard length (a beard must be measured from the center point of the protrusion of the skin to the tip) and convert it to decimal form.
    Next, multiply the beard length figure by 2; this is the number of points you receive for the beard length. If you have an atypical bird (multiple beards), measure each beard, convert them to a decimal number, then add those figures together and multiply by two. This is the number of points you receive for your turkey’s beards

    For the record, the pics tell the story. If you say your bird has 1.5 spurs but the pics show 1.25, don't whine:wave:
