Earlier this month, I completed my world slam of wild turkeys, tagging all 6 subspecies of turkeys in the U.S. and Mexico. Some folks manage this accomplishment in a single season. It took me 6 or 7 years before I downed my final gobbler in the series, this beautiful Osceola turkey from Florida. I can't say my slam was intentional. It just sort of evolved, but the most memorable parts of the pursuit weren't the turkeys. They were the experiences along the way. And the people who helped me, like my friend Linda Powell, pictured here with my last (or at least latest) in a long line of gobblers.
