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

Great patterns but at what distance were you shooting? If thats a 35yd+ pattern your golden but if its 20yds or something you may wanna shoot it a little further bc sometimes it only takes an extra 5yds for a pattern to start to fall apart. Good luck.

One more thing is are you shooting a 2 3/4" or 3" shell? Those shot count numbers seem awfully low for Hevi 13 #7's if thats a 3 1/2" shell. I've taken apart the 3 1/2" #7's before and there is over double the shot count in the shell that you have in your pattern. Still a dead turkey regardless.

Oh hell yea then. If your getting patterns like that out of 1.25oz shells you couldn't ask for anything more and are probably putting every piece of shot in the shell on the paper. Congrats on a great set up. Nothing does more for me than confidence knowing my equipment isn't something I need to worry about.
