How do you judge beard length on a turkey before shooting?

Beard length is strictly a guess until you've turkey hunted enough to know. I look for full fan and how much snood a Tom has. Here in TX. It's legal to shoot Jakes but I don't but I did kill one a while back that had a full fan but had about 5 or 6"beard and nubs for spurs. He came in from behind and when I turned i saw the full fan but he saw me and was leaving so I took him. I should have waited but stuff happens.
