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

What's Your Turkey Setup Gonna Be, Folks?

I use either my Rem 870 with 21" barrel or my 835 with 24" barrel, both with factory chokes and Federal 3" #5. My g/f uses her 535 with Win 3" #5. We try very hard not to shoot at a gobbler past 40 yards. That distance or closer is where the fun is for us.

Remington 870 12ga. with an extra full choke for me, and most likely a 20ga for my younger brother if I can borrow it from my father in law. If not, I may let him use my 870 and borrow a Remington 11-87 12ga. for myself.

I haven't started working on ammo yet, but I'm going to try a couple of the newer turkey loads that I saw in the gun store the other day.

Sounds like to me, JW! is possibly going to try using a crossbow. If so, just to show him he's a wimp, I'll use a sling shot.
Take that JW!
