That was the biggest set of spurs rve ever seen. The bird was killed by Dewey Bryant of Rupert. The gobbler weighed 18- 1/2 pounds and had a 10-inch beard. The picture of these spurs is on display in the Sporting Goods Department at Aide's Discount in Fairlea. The spurs of a gobbler are used for fighting. If you grab a bird too quickly, you can get a bad cut from the spurs. I had a spur rammed into the palm of my hand by a gobbler several years ago while hunting in Virginia. All the rain we have had lately has made fishing kind of difficult. I had a trip planned to the new River but it was rained out. I planned to do some bait fishing and took my two helpers, Scot and Tina, to help me catch a bucket of lizards. If you have ever gone lizard hunting, you at- ready know what fun it can be. The addition of a six and eight year old added a lot of excitement. Every time one of them would flip a rock and see a lizard, out would come a yell and the chase was on. Occasionally they would both get af- ter the same lizard and a minor scuffle would erupt. If the lizard managed to escape, it was always the other one's fault. Tina surprised me by catching the crayfish. She picked up one healthy specimen, turned to her older brother and smugly told him that she wasn't afraid of them.
