Turkey Hunting Whether it's spring or fall doesn't matter to this bunch. Great tips on calling, bustin flocks, using blinds and more.

last year I used the jellyhead choke and the remington 3.5" hevi-shot #6 load.

The year before I used the carlson xx-turkey choke and used the federal flight control with # 5 shot in the 3" load.

i use a nova with a primos tightwad choke and remington 3" loads. i've shot 2 birds at over 45 yards with this combo. if they are inside 40 yards, it's a done deal. i'm very happy with this combination. i've tried using 3.5" loads including federals but they don't pattern nearly as good as the 3".
