"Hear say"
I just got off the phone with my dad and he said there was a bird shot in Southern Iowa that was 36#'s and had 4 beards!!! I guess it was shot with a bow out of a treestand. He got the story from our neighbor in Mercer who said his nephew shot it (The guy likes to joke around though). Take it for what it's worth, That is all the info I have. If I find out any more info I will sure post up.
