In the world of hunting, there are many different groups of game animals that make up a dream slam for hunters, and the wild turkey is no different. In fact, there are six officially accepted slams in the world of turkey hunting.

The Grand Slam is one of the easiest to achieve and is a realistic goal for serious turkey hunters.

In order to achieve a Grand Slam in turkey hunting, you will have to bag and tag one of each of the four subspecies that make up the Slam. Those four subspecies are the Eastern, Merriam’s, Osceola, and Rio Grande turkeys. Thankfully for hopeful hunters, it does not matter if you take those four subspecies in the same season or throughout your entire lifetime of hunting.

However, before you do anything, it is essential to research and understand how to hunt each individual subspecies. Luckily, the kind folks over at Realtree put together a comprehensive guide that will teach hunters how to recognize each subspecies by both its physical appearance, as well as its gobble. The guide also includes useful hunting tips and the home ranges of each subspecies.
