"The Florida birds didn't disappoint. We had birds all around us everyday. They were very vocal on the roost, and we had a few close encounters early on. But turkeys being turkeys, they gave us the slip ... but would usually play ball again by mid-morning. The first two days offered several close calls, but I wasn't able to seal the deal. Frustrated, exhausted and seriously wondering if I would tag a bird and wrap up my slam, I prayed for an Easter miracle ... and got it. Around 7:00 p.m. on Easter Sunday, we intercepted a lone longbeard as he made his way across a big meadow. He was making a beeline for a stand of pines, no doubt on his way to roost. A little patience, a couple soft clucks and a load a 3" #5s was all it took to drop the bird at 35 yards. Game over. Grand slam complete. I was one very excited, very grateful, very humbled turkey hunter. Thanks to Ted Jaycox, Realtree's Dodd Clifton, and everyone else who helped make this hunt a dream come true for me."
