I searched the web for some information about wild turkeys and came across the most amazing website of Turkey Hunter Keenan Adams. He is the holder of eight, that’s right 8, Turkey World Slams. Here are the records listed in detail.
1st Youngest World Slam Turkey Holder
1st and Only Person to Hold 6 World Slams
Youngest person ever to take a World Slam in turkey hunting with a Matthews Bow.
Holder of Heaviest Ocellated Bird on record with the NTWF (17.4 pounds)
Holder of Best Typical Archery with NWTF
Holder of Best Overall Typical with NWTF (Ocellated Turkey)
Total of 74 Turkeys Harvested on record with NWTF
Any which way you look at it, this is a huge achievement for any turkey hunter. But here comes the real stunner. Keenan is only 12 years old. He is the youngest hunter in the world to hold such a prestigious lineup of turkey hunting achievements. Keenan seems to be way ahead of his age and in today’s world a refreshing change from what we are used to hear about youth. According to his website he combines his enthusiasm for turkey hunting with family, school, church and other sports that have made Keenan an exceptional example of what well-rounded means.
My hat goes off to that young man with the hope that he will inspire many other young kids with his exceptional personal and hunting achievements.
Please visit his website you will like what you see. while you there drop him a line to say hello and how well he's doing for his age.
