After registering, hunters will receive an 8 1/2 inch x 11 inch certificate as well as a Canadian Slam lapel pin or Mexican Slam lapel pin. The cost to register each bird is $10.
Also, beginning in January 2007, there will be a new look for the Grand, Royal and World Slam pin. Along with the lapel pin reflecting the slam, it will also reflect the method used to harvest the turkey: muzzleloader or bow.
