    Andrew, tell your friend to send the following information to the National Turkey Federation or the Fish and Game Department;
    1. Turkey’s live weight
    2. Turkey’s beard length
    3. Turkey’s spur length
    4. A photo of the turkey next to the hunter.
    They combine the tom’s weight, the beard length times two and the total length of both spurs times two for your grand total score.
    I think they will mail you a big tom turkey arm patch and a nice certificate.
    New Jersey Fish and Game gave me a nice bear arm patch
    two years ago.

    My buddy shot one last year that broke the county record, but didn't come close to state.

    Nice bird, but not a record breaker. I've killed some birds with 11" beards, but I'm nowhere close to a state record!

    I'm sorry but your buddies turkey was a 2 year old bird. Not 22 lbs isn't even gonna be close for an eastern.

    I believe the NWTF lists the "largest" bird as a Rio that weighed like 36 pounds!
    The largest I've killed so far has been 24 lbs and it was a Rio.

    In the New Jersey farm lands, tom turkeys can reach twenty five pounds with light hunting pressure.
