Dear George:

For over 70 years, Uncle Roy Moorer has hunted the wild turkey. During this time he has bagged over 500 legal birds.

"He knows more about what a turkey's thinking than the turkey does," Robert Moorer, a younger cousin of Uncle Roy, says.

Shooting turkeys on the wing and hunting turkeys with a turkey dog are just a few of the tactics Uncle Roy uses.

At 92 years of age, when most men are content to sit by the fire and rock while spinning tales of hunts of yesteryear, Uncle Roy is still hunting. Hunters near his home in Evergreen, Alabama, come by to ask his advice about old toms they have been unable to kill.

The story of Uncle Roy Moorer is not just a personality piece about an old hunter who holds the secrets of taking turkeys. The piece will have plenty of how-to information also that will help you readers take bronze barons of their own in the spring.

As always, we will supply color transparencies and black and white photos to accompany the article. I will look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely yours,


John E. Phillips
