What weapon will you be using on May 1st ?

Recommended Posts

I'll be toting around my trusty Mossberg 835 Ulti-Mag. This one was the NWTF model with the medallion in the stock. Even though I could choose other shotguns , I can't leave home without it. It's that good of a shotgun. I bought it sometime in the 1990's I believe and unfortunately the original woodland camo began flaking off. I tried touching it up with camo spray paint from Home Depot , but that didn't last too long. It was suggested on this site by one of the moderators ( I think it was WNYBuckHunter) to have it "camo dipped". By the way , belated thank you in case I forgot. I will also be using the Hevi-13 ammo which added additional maximum range over the old Federal 31/2 magnums I used to use.

A5’s are my favorite shotgun of all time. I ran into a guy this past deer season using one. Good luck this season.

Mossberg 835 with 3.5 inch Federal #5 shot.  Been using the same armament for 20 years and it always does the job with one shot to the turkey's face.  Longest shot was 60 yards.

I will be shooting a 3" Stoeger Model 3000 turkey gun in 12 gauge with a 24" barrel. I have a Burris Fastfire 3 sight mounted on it and I use Winchester Longbeard 3" ammo in #5 shot. I have shot several nice birds with this gun including the fan mount in the picture. Good luck to everyone and stay safe and healthy.         valoroutdoors.com 20200426_062053.thumb.jpg.43b35ff0e95dae64a0851a1c57fdfe99.jpg

My old faithful New England 20 gauge with the youth stock.  Shooting 3" winchester long beard xr.  She kicks like a damn mule but she shoots good.

Have that same gun. Got it for my 12th birthday. Was $74.99 at Walmart. Handed it off to a youth hunter to use last weekend. Great beginner shotgun.
