Here in Maryland: #4 birdshot and smaller for turkey hunting with a shotgun

The main reason they limit the size of shot for turkey hunting: It is easier to put a human's eye out with #2 birdshot, than it is with #4 or smaller.

Don't forget to wear eye protection when you go turkey hunting...especially when you're walking around in the woods --- Though sun glare off of a glass lens might spook a turkey --- Since some of them will prefer to come in to your setup with the sun behind them.

I mainly use tungsten steel loads for turkey hunting --- Copper plated second.
