Awsome pics, both of the TX hunt and the Western (Merriam) hunt!  Looks like you guys did really well!  Did you hunt with an outfitter?  I'm thinking about doing a Merriam hunt next year and a Rio hunt the following year (or vice versa).

Nice very nice.
If you agree with me call it fact; if you disagree - call it my opinion.
After all - we are talking turkey.

Wonderful pics. I've had the pleasure of hunting TX (Yancey) and loved it. Hope to make it back one day after I finish a slam. I'm headed to NM next spring. Any pointers? [;)]

Hi Rubo and thanks

Any pointers for NM would best come from Jim (Gobblerman) He is an expert turkey slayer and specializes particularly on NM Merriams. 

I will tell you that seeing that your from Mississippi or Missouri? You  won't have much of a problem with birds anywhere you hunt.

Main difference out west for me has been:

Get in walking shape
Be prepared to cover lots of ground
Use loud high pitched calls (box calls work great)
Be ready to move on birds especailly if they're with hens
Once you get one gobbling keep up the calling.
You can follow them and turn them around
They are walkers and cover lots of ground and will use terrain I never thought I'd see a turkey walk on in terms of steep hills etc

Merriams where I've hunted have short attention spans and where we may call less to most Easterns just the opposite can be true with Merriams. The good thing is you can often see them a long ways off and can adjust etc. They're the prettiest birds to me.
