Default Turkey slams

How many have achieved the grand slam,royal slam, and world slam. I have only harvested two of the sub-species, but definitley want to achieve several slams. Good luck to everyone this turkey season.

Hers is a pic of my bowslam mounts. The bases are the outline of the states. My ultimate goal is getting one in as many states as I can with the bow.

I've done the grand about 10 -15 times but never kept count. I looked inot the Royal but because of the large dollar difference in Canadian and US I figured it out that it would cost around $4000.00 and there is no turkey that is worth that money and when I know I could kill one.

Bull Nice mounts and congrats ! I wish I could get all mine done, I have 3 and the last one has been at the Taxidermy for 4 years. Don't take anything to Bowyers Taxidermy , you'll never get it...

I've got one grand slam to my credit. It took me 3 years to do it. What I would like to do now is try and do a grand slam in 1 years time, and then go for my royal slam. No interest in shooting an Oscillated.

Paint, I understand what you mean about the jungle chicken. I also have no desire to hunt them.

Kim, I started hunting back when I was about 10 with my grandfather , but never hunted turkeys until 1989 ...

The greatest trophy you have from all those slams is not the mounts but that good ole pickup beside the garage. Ole Red is a turkey hunting legend in it's own right. I miss shaking along in that thing going down to the lease lol.

I completed my slam back in 2008. Would like to go hunt the goulds one day but have no desire to hunt the jungle chicken. My 8 year old so is half way there and we are planning a trip for merriams next month. If that goes well we will head to FL next spring to try and finish him out.
