Turkey Subspecies in Your Area?

Postby duckman27 » Wed Apr 03, 2013 9:42 pm

Where I hunt in Eastern CO and Western NE we have both Merriams and Rios as well as Merriams x Rio hybrids. Growing up in Mississippi though all there were were Easterns. Any of y'all have multiple types in your area?

Wish we had turkey of any kind here. It would give us something to hunt bird wise. But I'll settle for hunting black and brown bears and travel for turkey.

In east NE we have easterns and rio's but for slam purposes with NWTF I'm pretty sure they don't count. Last time I looked NWTF says this half of the state is all hybrids. Only the Merriam pop. out in the panhandle is isolated enough to be considered a true subspecies
