Sam Becker bagged an impressive tom in Iroquois County with younger brother Max. The young man from Mokena said the big tom had a 10¼-inch beard and 1¼-inch spurs.

TOTW, the celebration of turkey hunting stories around Chicago outdoors, runs Wednesdays on the Sun-Times outdoors page, as warranted, generally in the spring. The story part and photo part both matter, such as Birsa’s spurs.
