Called him in to about 30 yards. His beard is wide and thick but only a few inches long, as you can see it has red tips which is different (some say that's from beard rot), he has a heavy body and 1" spurs

Nice bird. With the hard winters you have up there it's a wonder ALL the gobblers don't have beard rot. LOL Congratulations.

I am from the Chatham area, which is located in the southern part of Ontario
Beard rot can be common due to our winter weather........depending on the year
I started the morning with a Primos single reed mouth call to get his attention and once he got close to my single hen decoy I switched to my "Turkey Thugs Rim Shot" slat to seal the deal
Ammo was 12 gauge Winchester Long Beard 3" # 5

Thanks everyone!
