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'd get an extra full choke, and start with Win XX 3" #6 Turkey Loads. Bought mine at Dick's for $12 per box of 10. I'm guessing they'll do the trick out to 40 yds. IMO, no need to spend crazy money on shells for that distance.

What about 2 3/4 BB shot? $12.50 for a box of 25. What are some good chokes for $35 or less?

Check out these chokes.

What shotgun are you using?

I highly recommend the Winchester Long beards with a choke about .670.

I don't like taking shots over 20 yards. As of late it has been 10 to 15 yards......the closer the better.

But that is just me.
Not just you


That's when it gets really FUN !!!

I am using a Remington 887. I can only use 870 chokes on it. It's a fun gun and very soft shooting and is great for me because of shoulder issues. Another thing about range is I will be in the woods so none of my shots will be over 25 yards most likely. I will check out those chokes.

I wanted to thank everyone for their help and advice. Tomorrow is youth opener and next weekend full season opens. Hopefully next Saturday goes well. Wish me luck.

Wear a face mask and gloves. And when you're standing still to listen keep your arm movements to a minimum. No unnecessary pointing, waving or whatever.
