One of each, please!

One of the unnews, news articles that has been on the TV is that of a 10 year old kid from Action who got an outdoor grandslam – one of each, if you will, for deer, bear, moose and turkey. Here is the link.

Many hunters goes years or even lifetimes without reaching this accomplishment. I got drawn for a moose permit last year and we didnt get a moose. But, I also have no desire to bear hunt or really, turkey. I am happy with my whitetails.

So, what about all of you – want the grand slam? have you already accomplished it?
