Turkey Hunting and Things I've Learned From The Firing Line

Someone is always going to know something I don't.
Just because I have used a 3", 2 oz, #4 turkey load successfully for years doesn't make it the best turkey load.
If I pattern my shotgun, I'll know my true range.

Limbsaver recoil pads work. I've never replaced a recoil pad in my life, until this year. For next year - the addition of a neoprene shell holder can reduce stock slap on the TC Encore.
I shot this Tom at about 35 yards (I'd never shot a turkey further out than probably 25 yards in the past) and used a 3", 1 3/4 oz, #5 turkey load.

Thanks everyone.

Congrats on your full grown Tom. I`ve not been as lucky this year and with season coming to an end I`ll have at max two more attempts. Have had shots at some jake`s but passed. Hopefully I`ll be able to fool a Tom. If not there`s always next year.

My turkey hunting friends just returned from Wisc. yesterday. 1 for 3 and saw and talked with many. I got the thighs and drumsticks
