Osceolas are a bird that I've never even laid eyes on. I would love to bag one, but rumor has it that they are the hardest birds to call of all turkey subspecies. Long term, hunting them is a matter to applying for a public land hunt in southern Florida (which are apparently extremely well-managed, limited draw hunts), or simply going with an outfitter an keeping it simple.
Funny thing about the Osceola turkeys here in Florida. They are tough to find (during season)
I have seen more of them right off the shoulder of I-95 strutting around than I have in the field.
People pay dearly to hunt them here. I was lucky to have been invited on private property.
Dang! You snuck up to a FLOCK of turkeys in MT?! Nicely done is an understatement, thanks for posting up the hunt again.
You're making me feel bad, Luis. I'm glad you're having great success.
My first turkey was a jake, my second turkey was the jake that ran over and started kicking the hell out of the first jake....turkeys can have some incredibly weird (and funny) behavior
