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

Any idea what happened with the beard on the Merriams? I know they typically have thin, whispy beards that may be a bit shorter than Easterns - but that one looks broken from ice or beard rot/vitamin deficiency...

I've considered pursuing a US SuperSlam, and maybe once my last kid is out of the house I'll seriously consider it. Not sure I would pursue a Royal or World slam, mainly because I think those foreign birds look more like peacocks than turkeys..haha...
Thinking it had beard rot. They had a pretty bad winter that year from what I understand.

I ended up taking an Eastern, Rio and Merriams here in Oklahoma this season to turn it into a single season slam. We also call the 3 birds a Sooner Slam. This will probably be the last season for a while though that the Sooner Slam can be done in a single season. They are talking about lowering the tags to 2 a year starting next season to try and get the population back up a bit.
