Looks like a melanistic turkey. That's a once in a lifetime kill. Hope he get's it mounted. Can you show more pictures?

I personally would not mount a turkey but that one is no doubt wall worthy.

Possibly a black domestic turkey, Norfolk?

It does look simialr to that domestic bird. The one that was killed had to be born in the wild though. He had spurs. He was an older turkey too.

Beautiful bird...and rare. Too bad he won't be mounted.

Any other birds in the area show the same traits?
