Re: shotgun chokes

I always used a XX Full Choke in my 11-87 for turkey. As for the calls, I would use a slate call when they were a good distance away and when they got closer I would use a diaphragm call.

{edit} Here's a great site with all kinds of choke and ammo selections for ou to look through. They break it down quite well for ya. Gobble-Gobble

I thought a turkey choke had a tighter pattern than a full choke.

If your state laws allow it you can but use only if you like 1/2 of a turkey.

I shoot a Mossberg 835 Ulti-Mag 3 1/2 in 12ga extra full turkey choke tube and have taken a bird at 65 yards 1 shot.

It's amazing how stupid some people can be.

You are aware that you can get turkey at a grocery store, right?

NO, it is not Thanksgiving and the ones there are just left over from then.

i am aiming at his head - right, so the shot is going to scatter and get all over him. why not just use my -06 and finish the deal with one shot

did you shoot your regular full choke at the same distance and test the pattern out? what was your gain?

Re: shotgun chokes

I have not shot it much at 65 yards but did shoot quite a bit at 30 yards at a paper plate and lets just say the plate was covered with shot with the turkey choke. Not many birds are actually killed at long range most are taken at less than 40 yards. Spend $55 and shoot farther or save $55 and practice calling more. The mouth calls are needed for CQB but are the hardest to learn.

It's amazing how stupid some people can be.
