    Convinced a boss hen to come check out my set up this morning. This ol boy was putting on a show following a group of 3 hens. Watched him strut, gobble and drum across a ten acre field to within 40 steps. A load of Apex TSS Hometown Blend from my Benelli M2 20 gauge sealed the deal. Dude had spikes on his ankles.

    Osceola sub-species, 17 -18 poinds, 9 inch beard, 1 5/8 spurs.[​IMG][​IMG]

          It is interesting how these Osceola vary in size. When I had property I could hunt in Northwest Sumter County (FL) the gobblers averaged 19 - 20 pounds. This bird was taken in South Sumter County and these gobblers average 16 to 18 pounds.
