    That’s what I’m thinking too. A friend of mine shot a double bearded hen a few years ago here on the ranch. That was the first one I had seen.

    What a cool picture! But yes, it's a bearded hen.
    America is at that awkward stage. It's too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards.

    Oklahoma, last I heard, has the highest density of bearded hens in the country. I know a place NW of Lawton where 2/5 hens sport beards. Before hunting access was lost it was one heck of a turkey spot. I really wished I'd had a opportunity to take one.

    I missed a bearded hen that was almost a light blue/greyish coloring archery hunting with Craig. I really wanted that hen for a mount.

    I’ve seen a bunch of them while hunting with him. Usually in the spring when they are safe no less. I’m sure you’ve heard his stories about Mt. Home.
