    Just curious as to how many of my fellow Head rollers have or have read this Book? I have a rare 6th Printing of it from 1986 that is in Mint condition and I read it each year before Turkey season...It's the Best and Most Funny Book I have ever read...There is 1 exactly like mine on Ebay right now for $300 but I wouldn't sell mine for that...Mine also has some insignia on the inside cover that adds Mystery to the Life of the Book...Here's the ad that is on Ebay:

    This is a Near Mint condition copy of an ultra-rare early printing (6th- June, 1986) of Tom Kelly's turkey hunting classic TENTH LEGION. It is signed by Tom just inside the front cover, and inscribed below Kelly's signature to a turkey hunting buddy by one of Mississippi's well-known sportsmen, Walter Dennis. This rare hardback was published in very small runs by a private imprint, Wingfeather Press, and both the red cloth binding and the rare Mylar-wrapped dust jacket are as close to flawless as I have ever seen. This is a rare chance for a collector of books on hunting to add a cornerstone work. I checked on Abebooks, and a similar copy is listed for $500., while a signed First Edition is listed for $5,500.00. That is not a typo. Feel free to email any questions. PAYPAL only, $3.99 for worry-free continental U.S. shipping, $19.99 for overseas. Please allow 5-10 days for shipping, as I only ship a couple of times a week. Thanks, and Good Luck!!!

    Cool
    You have to read this Book!! It's his Best ever in my opinion but have heard they all are Good..Has some strong language in it but It's a great read!! I also recommend The Truth about Turkey Hunting by Ron 'CUZ' Strickland and Waynes Turkey world by the late Wayne Bailey...I have those also and they are Great Books.
