    Looks nice!

    Some fine colors to Ben Franklin’s choice for our national bird. There’s number one of your turkey grand slam Phoenix Phil!
    Now what, Merriams, Eastern, Gould and Osceola? Erik, don’t let him get away with just one! He needs a matched set!

    Shame on me! What a trouble maker I can be!

    I'm not a turkey hunter but I can certainly appreciate a beautiful mount.
