QUEST FOR WILD TURKEY GRAND SLAM!

Reply
 
Part 3 - RIO GRANDE

Got the the 3rd leg of the quest for the slam in 2009 this Monday @ 6:15 p.m. in Menard, TX when this bird came out with 2 others and passed 30 yards out following a large flock of hens. Never heard any of them, not once. Extremely windy conditions I think had them quiet and spooky. This bird had triple beards!!! I didn't notice them till after the pics were taken and he was being cleaned, hence no pics. I'll post the beard only pics later when I get a chance. The back 2 beards were identical 8" and the front one was 4 1/2"; he weighed in @ 17.5 lbs and had just over 1" spurs. Last leg for the grand slam comes in South Dakota on April 30. Keeping my fingers crossed as I have been blessed to have bountiful hunts thus far. Catch em and shoot em when you can.
