Same thread a year later. Well, since I held out for a longbeard and passed on two jakes at 8 yards (bowhunting) and went home empty handed I will still be trying to take a tom with 8"+ beard but can't say I'll pass on a good jake again. Bowhunting them is a different kind of monster. Time will have to tell this spring.

Looking for the long beards once again this year. We always have let the jakes walk since the second year that we hunted turkeys. Only killed one jake since then an that was either kill him or let him walk right over top of me.
