What Is Your Go To Spring Turkey Hunting Shotgun ?

Recommended Posts

Here you go kids.  After wanting these but only available hand rolled they are now in production for commercial sales   Not cheap but only pull the trigger once or twice a season after putting on paper anyhow   Loved the Heavyweight loads we've been shooting but looking forward to rolling a bird or two with these. Keep in mind the #9's are a no go in NYS  The "professional " turkey killers over on oldgobbler shoot these and primarily these (mostly #9's )  Most tote 20 gauges   Some .410 patterns are just mind boggling over there too   So for you running and gunning guys who want to carry a 20 gauge for less weight I highly suggest looking into these or Federal Heavywight in 7's (upon looking it appears they may have discontinued their standard heavyweight load and replaced with these TSS)

Wooooo lets order up a case, $9 a shot but I'd probably give them a run.

. .TurkeyFeathers-- you are right about the -- Professional Turkey Killers over at OldGobbler.com.  I am there as well. Everyone there just seems to be an expert . One veteran wrote of 200+ Gobblers-- but I don't put much stock in that number if you are sitting in a 2 man blind on your own 1000 acres.
