Thanks ol' timer. It is a turkey version of Godzilla. It had legs/drumsticks size and a half of what you expect to see and a giant chest. The bird looks nice in the picture but was truely a standout seeing it first hand.

I can relate to that size I took a heavy bird also, with the deer baiting allowed in NJ the animals are eating corn and other minerals from June till Feb. I can see a 30 plus lb.turkey being take in NJ at any time from the way the size of the birds being weighing in.

Your on track ol' timer. A 30 lb bird will probably be taken in the next year or two. Here's another big factor. People enjoy watching the birds antics in their backyards and are feeding them corn and seed year round. These birds aren't just getting by in the winter, their fattening up with their daily banquet routine. Last season I tried getting Ted B on a bird I believed would break the 30 lb mark. But a herd of deer spooked right through the birds and blew them out as he tried to setup. Birds of that weight are out there now. It's just a matter of time.
