    What are the different slams? Steve Rinella always talks about the different ones and I forget the species that delineates the two.

    Awesome man! Congrats! I’ve completed the grand slam but been hesitant about crossing the border for my world! May have to rethink it after seeing your post!

    Gorgeous bird!

    How do you show them in the trophy room?
    Full body? Tail,bead, spurs? Photos? Or with a side of mashed taters and gravy?
