Daryl Stubbs speaks a language that is the envy of legions of outdoorsmen in the Palmetto State.
The 67-year-old James Island resident knows what it takes to call in a wild turkey and in more than 40 years of hunting these wary birds — second in popularity only to the white-tailed deer among South Carolina hunters — has harvested countless turkeys both here in South Carolina and in other parts of the country.
“I’ve got two Grand Slams, the four sub-species we have in the United States. I’ve killed a bunch of Easterns, that’s the turkeys we have here in South Carolina. I’ve got seven Merriams, two Rio Grandes and two Osceolas,” Stubbs said.
