    <p>I was able to bag bird number two yesterday morning.&nbsp; The bird was classified as a Jake, but was a shade over 20 lbs.&nbsp; It had 9/16 inch spurs and a very nice fan.&nbsp; When the tail is spread out evenly, you can barely see the &quot;notch&quot;&nbsp; The beard was very short at about 4&quot; but had very bad beard rot.&nbsp; Was this a special bird to most hunters?&nbsp; Probably not, but to me it was the best bird that I have ever taken.&nbsp; The reason, it was the first turkey ever taken on our farm.&nbsp; Hopefully they will continue to prosper in our woods and my grandkids will have the same opporunity that my great-grandparents have given me.</p><p><img style="" src="http://pic6.picturetrail.com/VOL176/1167821/6221337/94590029.jpg" alt=""/></p>
