Turkey World Slam Quest
Why am I hunting Wild Turkeys around the world? Why am I spending lots of money on just a bird? Because I love turkey hunting and traveling! Now I live the life of a professional hunting consultant for Outdoors International, and I not only get to hunt for a living, but I’m able to help our clients do the same.
I was not born and raised on hunting like many others who had that tradition in their family upbringing; as a child we camped and fished. But like they say about Texans: “I wasn’t born in Texas, but I got here as fast as I could!” The same can be said about hunting for me and many others who came to it later in life and had to be self-taught. You don’t have to be born a Turkey hunter but it gets in your blood very fast! I say: “The only people who don’t want to hunt Africa are people who have not hunted Africa.” Same for Turkey hunting; Once you hear that “Thunder Chicken” gobble, call in your first bird and outsmart an old Tom; you’re hooked! Turkey hunting is fun low cost interactive hunting.
Do you just want to stick to that one subspecies that lives in your backyard, or want to go for a Grand Slam with a Eastern, Merriam, Rio and Osceola in the US mainland? Be careful though, because you’re probably going to get all crazy and want to go after your Royal Slam or even the World Slam. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
The World Slam is my goal this year? I’m going after my Gould’s in Durango and then on to the World Slam to add an Oscillated turkey in Campeche, Mexico. You are welcome to come along with me in May, 2018. Are you interested in coming with me? If so, you are more than welcome.
If you’re not quite ready for that, I can help you plan a trip for later, either a big World Slam trip or even just single turkey hunts in Hawaii, Florida, Colorado, the Midwest, Idaho, Mexico, New Zealand or even in Europe…. the list of good outfitters we work with is LONG. When you’re ready, we can help realize your dreams.
