Hey Everyone,

New Turkey Hunter here. Just wanted to get some suggestions on a good starter shotgun. Also, I plan on doing some duck hunting as well so something that works for both would be a plus.

Thanks!

Rem 870 express, 12 gauge, 3 inch with Remchoke. Find a good turkey choke/shell combo and you are set. I like Nitro shells and a Comp-n-choke xxfull for my 870.

I've used a 835 for quite a few years with no complaints. It's certainly not a top-end shotgun but has never let me down. I have a NIB 835 I got at a NWTF function several years ago...PM me if you're interested.

does it really make that much of a difference or is it just a personal preference?
Camo finish REALLY does NOT make much difference. I have turkey shotguns that are full camo and others that are matte blue. I have NEVER lost a turkey because my shotgun was'nt camo. Camo looks cool though!

Its always nice to have the 3.5 "option, but its not needed. 3"er's will knock them dead too! and at 40 to 50 yards. And good choice in the 870! Solid platform, killed zillions of turkeys since its inception, and your gonna be pleased. Just don't get talked into that Rem 887... Total JUNK!! Sights, I use a red dot cause my eyes are 40 years old... but anything fiber optic if your goin hard and doing it the right way!
