View Full Version : Airguns for Turkey in California!

November 7, 2000, 02:07 AM
As of this year it is legal to hunt turkeys with airguns over .20 caliber. This should open up turkey hunting to those of us in suburban/semi-rural areas infested with turkeys but without enough land or understanding neighbors to use a shotgun.

Any thoughts? I am excited enough about it that I am going to buy a decent .22 caliber air rifle just for turkeys.

Head shots at 10-20 yards are the preferred method.

There used to be an article on this site concerning gobblers and airguns.

I've got a benjamin .22 rifle that I have had for over 30 years now. There isn't much that I haven't dropped with it. I remember thinning out my chicken coop of roosters a few years back. As I shot the rooster I threw them on to a makeshift table for cleaning. I turned my back for a second and one of them jumped up and took of running????? Nerves I guess???? I never shot one of my Turkeys with the benjamin but I would say that it could probably drop one out to 30 yards.
