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

I would recommend that you try a different choke/load combination. I'm sure that someone on here will give youa good recommendation for your your gun. Guns can be really picky. I'm sure that you'll find something that will give you much better patterns than what you're currently getting though.

Your gun is more than capable of providing great turkey patterns.
The best thing you can do with any gun is to upgrade your ammunition. You will get better patterns with good ammunition and a so-so choke than you will with so-so ammunition and a good choke.

Think your gun is OK, I have had much better luck with the full choke than the turkey choke.....I shoot Rem nitro mags # 6s, 3",

Dude, the Stoger m2000 is an amazing all-aroung shotgun. This year i bagged a 23 pound tom from 35 yards. As soon as i shot it it dropped without a flinch. I had the full choke on that came with it and remington nitro turkey 3" loads. I have fired over a 1000 shells out of my camo synthetic m2000 and it has never gave me any problems what so ever! great gun, i would recomend it to anybody
