Steven Rinella, host of MeatEater, embarks on an Osceola turkey hunt in southern Florida in hopes of completing the royal slam of turkey hunting – bagging each of the five North American wild turkey subspecies. An Osceola turkey is the final bird Rinella needs to complete his quest – a decade in the making – on this week’s episode of MeatEater, exclusively on Sportsman Channel, Thursday, March 6 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT.
There is nothing in comparison to turkey hunting season, especially when an Osceola turkey – the last of the five subspecies, hunters typically harvest to complete the royal slam – is on the line. Rinella calls on patience and persistence in hopes of claiming the royal slam. But when an unexpected visitor spots his hunting location, the gobblers disappear before he can get a clean look. “Things go wrong while you’re turkey hunting, and you think you’ll never have a good opportunity. I say that every hunt,” said Rinella. “But you just have to keep optimistic, because all it takes is for one little thing to go right.”
