We're not sure what Bradley Miller of Watertown, Wis., is more proud of, the 22-pound longbeard he took on April 14 in Juneau County or his 2-month-old son Aiden, who is already decked out and ready for the field. I'll give the edge to Aiden, though that is one nice tom from a land where even the jakes seem to break the 20-pound mark. The beard on Miller's bird measured 9 7/8 inches.
His wife, Connie, took and sent the picture in, so her name goes in the hat for the Give Us The Bird Photo Contest. The two can fight over the prizes (or share) if they win!
To you procrastinators out there, the deadline for entries is midnight June 30.
