    Turkey are tough birds so I would say 20 gauge is too light . Go with a 12 gauge 3 inch shell . #4

    good luck and sure hope you don't go the rimfire route.

    been said here before buy do not overcall. If one is around he will know where you are . And be patient .
    good luck
    Ban Ban Ban Ban !
    Get over it, I've been using 22WMR since Turkey was opened in BC. THAT is part of our heritage here, NOT shotgun or bow only .

    Rimfire for head/neck shots or body shots?
    Never say 'whoa' in the middle of a mud hole.

    My favorite shot is broad side, about an inch below the wing joint. average shot between 10 and 20 yards. never found a bird with bullet in it , but a few over the years with pellets in them.

    awesome! i knew there had to be some guys sniping these birds off with a rifle. great to hear, thanks for the tips.

    in the latest meat eater season 8, the turkey hunting one with the chicks...they are using a 20ga shotgun.

    i picked up some mouth calls, damn they are difficult. will be fun once i figure them out.
