Turkey hunters pretty much "aim" at a nearly stationary target with EXQUISITE eyesight so they like the shorter barrel that is easier to steady rest and harder for the bird to notice moving...

Duck hunting is "point" shooting so the longer barrels create a better "sight plane" from eye to barrel bead and many shooters like the follow thru swing characteristics of the longer guns...

For a gun for both ducks and turkey, a 26" works just great.

Still has the swingability for ducks, but has a bit shorter barrel for turkey hunting in the woods.
