Russell Scores In Indiana

Russell_image_2Longtime Strut Zone reader Greg Russell (left in picture) has offered a lot of input since OL kicked off its wave of outdoor blogs. Greg has tossed his picture into the "Give Us The Bird" ring and after offering a number of supportive comments, finally becomes the topic of a post after he scored big on an Indiana hunt.

Greg and his friend, Harold Greene, hunted at Royal Flush Enterprises, which normally runs only pheasant and quail hunts, but as the pair have learned over the past two years, also has a healthy turkey population.

Greg's trophy weighed 21 1/2 pounds, had an 8-inch beard and...um... well, had spurs Greg tells us that measured 21 millimeters! Greg, buddy, millimeters? Why the sudden switch to the metric system? I don't have a tape measure handy and as I'm virtually mathematically illiterate (that's why I'm an editor), I'll let you dudes figure out how that translates into the English system.

Greg will be entered into our "Give Us The Bird" contest with prizes offered by Carry-Lite, Hunter's Specialties, Knight & Hale, Quaker Boy, Primos, Woodhaven Custom Calls and Woods Wise. For complete details and rules, click here.

Doug-I don`t know why Indiana does that, but they measure spurs in millimeters. It`s odd I know, and I never bothered to do the conversion, but thanks for running the photo.


Hey Greg. That's weird. I never knew that. Hope you didn't mind me having a little fun with you. It's all good you know. Awesome bird.

I also got your story and plan to add it this weekend. Thanks again for checking out the Strut Zone and for sharing the story of your hunt with everyone else.

No problem Doug-I can take the ribbing. I know it`s all in fun, I`m tickled you used the photo, and use the story too if you like. Thanks again.


Hey, you have a great blog here! I'm definitely going to bookmark you!

I have a Bass Fishing site. It pretty much covers Bass Fishing.

Come and check it out if you get time ;)
