Turkey Hunting Whether it's spring or fall doesn't matter to this bunch. Great tips on calling, bustin flocks, using blinds and more.

I plan to get 5 of the 6, so whichever slam that is? the main 4 in the US first...then work on that 5th.

I only have an eastern, spring rolls around and I find myself planning fall hunts for big game, not going on turkey hunts, I end up just chasing them in my home state.

So who knows if/when. Maybe when I have some extra cash laying around I'll just book a hunt for one of the others.

Keep at it swampbuster and you will get it.

Is there such a thing as a public land slam?

That is the one I am working on. That is the hardest of all slams to get.
One of each species on public land.

Default My Slam

Just got my Grand Slam done last week with my final bird an Osceola down in FL (took me three years)....... But to make the rest of the season fun I'm going to try and take a Rio, Eastern and Merriam all this season as well so I can say I did it all one year.

Default Grand slam in 2005

I shot my Grand Slam in 30 days in 2005. It was the most exciting thing I have accomplished with my bow. I began bow hunting for turkeys in 1999 so I accomplished my Grand Slam six years later. To date, I have taken 94 turkeys with a bow. I spent a lot of windshield time going state to state to get the 94 birds.

I probably won't, need to go to Florida sometime, but I have better things to do if I do go there.. Pretty much, as anything else, you can buy your slam... you just have to dump the money in it
