So while I have not put a tape on him yet, it looks like he did count this as 3 points. I think it would definitely be 2 regardless which would give it 9 abnormals, 8 of which are on the bases.
Going to have to do some rearranging on the wall. I think he would look best more in a corner, I didn't realize how hard of a turn the form has.
Love it regardless but think it would look better like that than in the center of a wall.
Just sprayed some clothes with permethrin, not sure how good my signal will be but I'll be on my first turkey hunt in the morning.
Not sure how long I'll last with my mind normally focused on morels this time of year.
Good luck with the turkeys and the mushrooms.

Alright, credit to @virginiashadow today.
I decided since one of my turkey hunting spots has been a bust, I'd use some of Bretts ridge running techniques to check out 2 adjacent public land parcels, one 150ish ac and the other a bit over 300. The two were divided by a stream, which I wasn't sure about the size.
I had marked 2 spots in the smaller parcel I wanted to check out today.
I set up before dawn along near one of my marks, in a draw, along an edge of pine/hardwoods. Well I did have a gobbler nearby which was great to hear, but he hung up and I assume moved onto the nearby private.
I moved on to spot 1. A shelf near a on a small hill.
. No old rubs, but I did find myself a gnawed souvenir. I thought was a bone, but seems to be old tine.
I called as I crossed the pine covered parcel hoping, but no more calls. Spot 2 was close to the stream dividing the parcel. I found remnants of a old feeder as I approached the dense rhododendron covered ridge and pushed to the stream.
the stream was a showstopper. But I bushwacked toward the other shelf. In hindsight not sure why I marked the south face, but found very fresh scat 100ft away on the north side.
No birds brought home, but a good day afield.
