My dad and I are wanting to start working on our slam. So far we've only killed Rios. Looking for ideas to start knocking some others off the list. We don't mind paying a little money, but were not fully guided $2,000 per hunter type people. Trying to get some ideas of what others have done, be it day leases, public, etc.

I haven't tried for a slam but I think it would be really exciting to achieve one but hunting public land exclusively and DIY hunts. That would be my idea of the Ultimate Slam.

I am working on a slam myself. I am going to try to get all the subspecies on public land. So far I just have Rios and eastern. It kinda makes it more fun for me to get all the subspecies unguided on public. The merrians in New Mexico is next.

That's my plan...I was supposed to go to New Mexico this spring but since my wife and I are expecting our first child in about a month I think I'll put it off a couple of years. I killed my first rio on public land years ago and have been fortunate to take and eastern on public land the past two springs. My buddy has killed Merriam's in NM and we were supposed to guide in that area for some other hunters this spring, so we know it will be more beneficial going there than pay a fortune for a guided hunt. I happen to know of a couple of landowners in Florida who I can get access to hunt Osceola, so I may not have to public land hunt there, but like Merriams hunt that will also be put off a year or two. Either way I love turkey hunting public land as long as the birds are there...

The Osceola will probably be last one. I have not done any research on hunting Florida yet.

Cheers and good luck.
