16 turkeys in 5 yrs would disagree.............................
I'm sure all the turkeys others have been shot with longer barrels wouldn't...
My point is I think the cop-out answer is actually a valid one: Each persons' preference is the best for themselves. I would venture to guess a longer barrel could
be advantageous for a hunter with limited experience and his/her best shot is at the far end of the distance that's comfortable to shoot. Understanding what choke you have is a big factor, I'd have to think a longer barrel could be beneficial.
I could be wrong. I'm not an expert in the matter...just making observations.
