If you've hunted turkeys, odds are you've seen a couple of gobblers fight—or, at the very least, tear up a decoy. It happens. It's not often you get a brawl quite like the one in the video embedded above, however. Allegedly filmed in Minnesota, according to its YouTube description, the video features a pair of rather nice longbeards trying to tear each other a new one. The video's owner filmed about three minutes of the smackdown, but claims in the description that it'd go on for another 15. Impressive stuff.
