Turkey Shotguns

What's your Fall Turkey shotgun?

I'm hunting the big mountains of Sullivan County where a 40 yard shot is many times the norm. I will be carrying my Browning Gold Stalker 12ga 3.5" magnum topped with a Bushnell Trophy XLT(1.75-4X) plus the a Trulock No.7 Precision Hunter choke that George Trulock specifically designed for the No. 7 Federal Heavyweights. Nearer the end of season pending visibility may tote my 22 mag.

Heading to the big woods at the end of the week. Iíll be toting my Benelli 20 gauge.

I don't hunt turkeys because I want to, I hunt turkeys because I have to.

In the fall, I like to carry a Savage model 24 22 magnum over 20 gauge. I also carry my shotgun sometimes which is nothing fancy, just a basic Remington 870 Express turkey model.

No, I do not have a scope on the model 24. Luckily both barrels shoot to the same point of aim with the iron sights on my gun although I know this may not be the case with all 24's.

If you get them busted up, Loggy, I doubt you'll have any trouble getting them closer than 40.

GOBBLE THIS!!!

Agree Fall Gobbler..."if" a flock break. In areas I hunt more times than not I see groups of 3-4 which makes it a different ballgame. Plus as leaves/foilage is much less than Spring Turkey...also adds to most shots being longer vs Spring. Also, the Fall F.O. requirement is good for safety not so much so for aiding the turkey hunter.
