    nope wouldn't think of it hayzer
    nothing against any one that takes one perfectly legal i just can't make my self shoot a bearded hen

    she would make a good one if some one was looking to mount one though
    the pics don't really do her justice i was looking at her though the big scope and she was with another hen she has a very fuzzy head kinda cool and some of her beard must been in the grass in the pics or she was holding it funny cause i guarentteee its a good 8 inches if not more one of the best beards i have seen on a hen fairly heavy and good and long
    not a paint brush like i have seen on some toms but good for a girl

    Well I've never seen one in the wild, so it's a cool pic for me. I'd have a tough time deciding whether to take her for a mount or not. But, if I had seen one several times and have photos, I might be like you and be happy with pics.
