    spurs
    I measure mine from the long side bur (inside of leg) to the tip straightline. NWTF measures from the bottom side around the full curve to the tip.

    Average turkey leg is almost always .75 front to back. A good set of spurs will always look longer than the thickness of the leg so a photo of spurs usually tells whether someone's claim of their length is accurate or not.
