Default What's Your Turkey Setup Gonna Be, Folks?

Only three months and a week to go until TURKEY SEASON.

What gun, choke, and load are each of you using this spring?

I am using my 10 gauge Browning Gold this year, and I am going to try out a Rhino .690 choke. I am gonna scope the beast this year, with a Leupold fixed power 4X. I will test out a variety of loads before I choose what I am stoking what my son refers to as the "Turkey Cannon" with this year.

What about everyone else?

Same gun I've used for the last 5 years- Mossy 835, Rob Roberts Final Strut choke. I have a Bushnell 4X scope, along with see-through fiber optic sights. I'm switching over to 3.5" Hevi Shot blended shells, since they no longer make Winchester heavy shot. I'm good to at least 50 yards with this gun.

Remington 870 super mag special purpose with kick's tube. Hi vis sight in place of the bead. Federal or Winchester 3in 2oz 5 shot. Both loads shoot well. I like them to be close enough to see them blink but am still very comfortable past 50 yds in case they smell a rat. This set up has filled my Tn tags faithfully.

I don't know the answers yet! I'll use my mossberg 500 but haven't messed around with chokes or loads yet.
