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

Mossberg 535 pattern.

Default Mossberg 535 pattern.

Went out a week ago and patterned my gun. I got a new choke, TruGlo
SSX and polished my barrel. I am shooting a Mossberg 535 with 3 1/2 Heavy Shot Mag Blend. I doubled my #s from last year.
I think she will hunt, Thanks John

Hey John. Do you have any pictures of that 3 1/2 in. shell knocking your hearing protection off your head? Just messing with you buddy. Team 13 will be going down.

More power to you man. I have an 835, and I thought it kicked pretty hard until I shot a friends 535 with turkey loads. Recoil of my 835 seems mild by comparison. Great patterns, though.

I went and shot with RPD63, 2nd reply.
My buddy has a led sled and it was our 1st time using it. I thought the sled would stop most of the kick, IT DID NOT.
My headset went flying, lost my hat and had a small bruise and cut on my cheek.
But I was shooting 3 1/2 " shells, [B][U]RPD63 is only shooting 3" girly shells. season starts in 1 week, I am ready.

I look at that pattern and yes the turkey is dead but it looks low. I see no hits in the skull area.
