 Turkey Osceola 

Osceola Wild Turkey

pictureThe Florida osceola wild turkey, meleagris gallopavo osceola, was named after a famous Seminole Indian chief of the early 1800's. The Osceola subspecies is similar in feather markings to the Eastern except that black predominates in the wing barring of the primary wing feathers.

The Osceola turkey is the smallest and one of the most challenging subspecies of turkey to hunt. A mature tom turkey will only weigh 16 - 18 pounds in his peak breeding state but makes up for the lower weight with longer spurs on average than the other subspecies. There are approximately 80,000 Osceola turkeys roaming the southern portions of Florida today.
