Poehlman_imageDennis Pohlmann, 27, of St. Peters, Mo., shares this tale of a phenomenal hunt in nearby Williamsburg that he and friend, Dae Lederle enjoyed this past spring. Here’s his story:

Tale of the tape: Dennis’ bird (left) weighed 20 pounds, had an 11 1/4-inch beard and 1.125-inch spurs (I’ll let you convert it, I’m lousy at it.) Dae’s tom tipped the scales at 20 pounds as well and had an 10 1/2-inch beard and 1-inch spurs.

I can promise you it is a day neither one of these guys will ever forget.

Since he sent us the picture, Dennis will be entered into our “Give Us The Bird” contest with prizes offered by Carry-Lite, Hunter’s Specialties, Knight & Hale, Quaker Boy, Primos, Woodhaven Custom Calls and Woods Wise. The deadline for entries has passed and winners will be announced on the evening of Monday, July 17. If he wins, maybe he’ll share a call or two with you, Dae.
