Anyone trying to "do the slam". It's my dream to "get some of dat" Will be hunting Florida next year for the first time but so far I've been hanging tight to the easterns. How about you guys :huh:

i would kill for the opportunity to do a slam. but it would have to be solely un guided. i have killed all easterns except 1 beaut of a RIO that i killed last year in west texas.

A slam is only a dream for me. I wish I could have the time to do it, but in reality it ain`t going to happen. Now I might some day go out west and hunt a merriams. That for me would be enough.

i doubt i'd ever have the chance to do a slam either. at least not in the near future. maybe later on down the road sometime, but in the next 5 years i know its not gonna happen. but i do think i could possibly try for one of each of the species every year for the next few years and then maybe save some money and take 30 days leave and try for the slam. but i'm dreamin right now.

I've got easterns and will hopefully get my Merriam in NE this year. Hopefully a Rio next year and then the Osceola in FL the year after that.

Two years will find me with all the time in the world to chase turkeys. I plan on hitting "de slam trail" I remeber reading a while back :huh: of a guy that had killed a turkey in every state, now THAT would be cool :wink:

I am trying mine this year. We have easterns and rio's in Oklahoma. Hopefully if everything goes right I will be leaving in in 3 weeks to Florida to hunt. Then I am leaving April 28 for South Dakota for my Merriam and on the way home I am going to hunt in Missouri. I have a outfitter in Florida and Missouri that is friends of mine and they told me all I have to do it show up and buy my tags and that is it. South Dakota is $450 plus tags and they are $110 for one turkey and $100 for the second. We are hunting on a Indian Reservation.

Finnished my 2n shotgun grand slam in 05. I am 1/2 way through my archery grand and am planning to get some goulds in 2010. So far I have been unguided on all my hunts.

:bow: Great to hear, have you managed to get any of your hunts of film? I can only imagine how good it's got to feel. Maybe, one day I too will have to experience "that feeling" :yes:

It was just luck of the draw so to speak. I grew up in NH and was in the marines in NC. I got to hunt easterns in NH, VT, PA, NY, WV, VA, NC, SC an MS. Then I went to college in MT and we have merriams here. After college I worked in central OR where there were rios. Then moved back to MT. Im friends with a guy in FL and thats how I got my osceolas. It just worked out good. I am heading down to FL next spring to stick a osceola with my bow. I wish I could do a goulds and oscallated without a guide but thats not possible so I'll have to pay someone to follow me around.
