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 guess 7 shot would make sense then.

Thanks for this tip Kelly! Bass Pro went out of stock shortly after you posted this, but I was able to get my local Cabelas to match the price for in-stock supplies. Don't forget to grab the 10% rebate from Federal, save you some extra cash...I attached it as a JPG.

I grabbed 6 boxes of 9 shot and it's devastating - my son's 20 gauge Weatherby blew holes through 5/4 PT decking from 25 yards. Pattern at 40 yards in the pic. I have an Indian creek choke with a tighter constriction on it's way from Midway (scheduled to arrive today), I'm actually afraid it may be too tight for the #9.

I went to Academy Sports last weekend and there was literally no turkey ammo! Nothing! I couldn't believe it. I think people were just buying whatever they could.

I received the Indian Creek choke this afternoon and immediately tested it, and my suspicions were correct - the Indian Creek with .555 constriction is too tight for the TSS #9 (at least for my son's Weatherby SA-08). The Longbeard XR choke remained the top choice and gave the densest and most consistent pattern.

The Indian Creek had the best pattern (by far) for #5 shot, for both Winchester Double X and Longbeard XR, and it increased shot load almost 50% on an 8x11 target. I also tried the TSS out of the Hevi-shot choke (.560), but the pattern out of the XR choke (.558) was by far the best for the TSS #9.

Shoot ole Tommy Three Toes in the face ya'll!
