Guns? Who needs guns? Why I just call the in, when they get real close. I STAND UP AND SCARE THE LIFE RIGHT OUT OF THEM!

This year I am going after them with a bow for the first time. I have been practicing, as long as they are as big as a barn, I see no problems.

All kidding aside, I am going after with a bow this year for the first time. Its actually been 4 years since I got a turkey. But I have been in on quite a few successful hunts. Pretty much always on the calling side.

I will be using BEULAH this year. The SxS black powder 12 gauge. No choke. 90 grains of 2F with 1 1/4 oz of #5's sitting on top.

Mossberg 835 ulti-mag again. It is my only shotgun now, it has served me well. I have a slew of 3 1/2 federal size 4's left. this is the first year I am wondering why I am using those shells when they kick so bad. I believe I will go down to 3" when they are gone. I bought a new choke for geese and believe I will compare it to the ulti-choke that came with the gun. of course, I have also not ruled out the bow and arrow. will have to see how much time I have. God bless.

I dunno about all these big boomers, fellas.

I'm not hunting turkeys this spring, but if I was I'd use the same ol' Winchester 37 I've always used in the past.

20 gauge, 2 3/4" chamber, full choke, #4 Federal magnum loads. I bought the box of shells about 20 years ago, and still have about half a box left.

And every time I've ever shot at a turkey with this little shotgun, the turkey dropped like a stone. Killed one at ~70 yards.

Ron,

I've had that shotgun for better than 30 years, and it belonged to my dad before that. Can't see selling it for any amount.

It holds a lot of memories of good hunts, for sure.

I'll be using the mossberg 535,28in,undertaker ported choke and 3" 4x6 loads.works like a charm.I top her up with a 3x7x30 3200 elite cause my shootin eye waters up pretty bad.the real fun of the hunt is still calling for my buddy! works so nice when one calls and the other can concentrate on the shot.we just have a blast!

We are running up to the place tonight to look for pigs and will stay over to see if we can pull any Toms in tomorrow morning.

I will be carrying Beulah with #5 lead in the right barrel and .69 pumkin in the left.

Great gun...I agree with the 3", lot less kick and will perform as well with good choke tube..Great verse! God Blees u

i have 7 shotguns , 2 pumps 2 bolts 2 singleshots and a double barrel , i think i would use either the 20 ga bolt or the new 3.5" mossberg 535 , i haven't even shot it yet , got me one with the deer barrel combo , just for the shotgun deer season we have here and for geese , that combines with a number 3 or 4 shot ,and a full choke choke tube and off to the races we go :)
