Canadian Gobbler
« on: May 16, 2018, 12:59:00 PM »
One of the things I have always wanted to do is complete all the different types of turkey slams. Iíve done the WA mini slam several times, the grand slam, and the royal slam so far. I met another milestone this year with the North American turkey slam, which is a turkey harvested from all the countries in North America. Iíve known for quite some time that there are some good areas in BC that hold a lot of birds. I played with the idea of going up there for about 5 years and finally went and did it this year. BC introduced an online system this year, which made getting licenses and tags much easier. In the past I would have had to make a separate trip up before the season with all the appropriate documents to get an alien hunting license. To make a long story short, I drove up last weekend, got there in the evening and roosted some birds that were on public land. The morning hunt yielded a nice gobbler down within about 2 hours. It was a great time and hunt in beautiful British Columbia! 🇨🇦

Thanks for sharing and congrats!

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

That's pretty cool, were you required to go with a guide for turkey?

That's cool.  I'm only half way to the US slam (Merriams and Eastern).  Where did you go to get an Osceola?
Look man, some times you just gotta roll the dice

Turkeys are classified under Game birds/ small game in BC, meaning they can be hunted by non resident aliens without the use of a guide or mentor.

Congrats now you need to get the Canadian slam. A turkey from each of the provinces.which is on my list. I have to finish my world slam, and of course get my eastern to finish my WA slam which will make 15 years in a row, now with all three weapons.

@MerriamMagician: For future reference: Would this be the correct link to setup and purchase B.C. FWID and small game Species ID (Turkey Tag)?
https://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content/sports-culture/recreation/fishing-hunting/hunting/non-resident-hunting

Were you required to purchase the $30 WildLife Export/Transport Permit too?  Looks like applies to Big Game only ... but by Definition is close...
[... Export Wildlife Permit, which is required by individuals and organizations who are exporting live or dead wildlife, parts of wildlife or an egg(s) of a wildlife species out of British Columbia to other Canadian provinces or out of Canada  ...]
