    Cool bird , not what I'd consider a game bird but what do I know , Those OC Turkey's have cool colors but they're heads are fugly .... Looking forward to hunting Turkeys ....and probably a few bonus Hogs but as far as Mounting Turkeys ... Nope , not one of my favorite things to do .. I'll mount them for people I know and myself other than that I don't take them from just anyone ...

    Just sitting here watching Jim Shockey hunting both of these birds. Looks like a very beautiful place to hunt. And a good place to see all sorts of critters . Good luck I hope you knock them down. Please be sure to post some pictures as I do consider them to be a very cool game bird and even cooler adventure. You are blessed

    I tell you what. I’ll go down their for you and shoot to your hearts content if you offering to fund the trip. Lol. That would be one expensive bird. Or at least a opportunity at a bird. I assume their is no Guarantee on the hunt

    The guarantee is I’m taking a steamer trunk down with holes drilled in it and find someone that wants to do my taxidermy.

    Killed a couple Rios , few weeks back and can take one more . Although I got one that was 23lbs the beard was only 9" so I'm still trying to get a trophy Tom to mount for myself . . I do not enjoy mounting Turkey's basically because they're so big and are a lot of work and I guess like anything the more of them you work on the better you get ... so I've got 4 to do coming up not counting mine ... I Like to have my taxidermy all done by end of May and this year I doubt that will be the case ...

    Michigan's season opened last Saturday. My son Jacob (12.5 yrs old) and I doubled up by 9:30 am. Mine was 23lbs 2ozs 1 1/4" spurs 12" beard and his was 22lbs 14ozs 10" beard 1" spurs. Had three long beards beating the heck out of my decoy at 15 yds. A day I'll never forget!

    Byrdman they cost $200. To shoot they are shipped back to the US skinned and salted. Not sure what that costs?
