Re: florida turkey my first

Thanks it took a lot but finally got it. Finding aplace to hunt in florida is tuff if you don't use a guide. But I found 1 that let me hunt on my own at half the cost but I. Had to hunt the last 3 days of season but it payed off.

Nice bird O.T.! Congrats!!!

i don't know is it is Osceolas, but i remember a couple of months ago reading that one of the species actually has a decent percentage of gobblers that will not have any spurs at all. i'll have to see if I can look it up again.
