A friend of mine went hunting today with a friend of his. He has a spot in Webster County that he has permission to hunt and he killed this bird this a.m. I have never seen a turkey colored quite like this one. They jumped it in a bottom field as as came off of a ridge, it flew and his friend wing shot it because he saw the beard hanging, only to find out it was a bearded hen. She weighed 15 lb and had a 7” beard. What a neat bird, thought I would share with it.
