What Is Your Turkey Gun Set Up?

Recommended Posts

With turkey season coming up what is your turkey gun set up?

 

For me it's a Mossberg 835 with a Indian Creek Choke, fiber optic barrel sights, with either Winchester Supreme High Velocity 3.5", 2 oz. #5, or HeviShot 13, 3.5", 2-1/4" #5

 

Hoping I have time to make it out this year.

 

Good luck to you all !!!!

I haven't been out in a few years now, but I have an SBE2 with a Rhino .660 2" ported extended choke shooting 3.5" Nitro 4x5x7. Pretty deadly out to a long ways! :up:

This year it will be whatever the bow I decide to buy. But in the past it was sbe2 with stock full choke. Winchester #5 3 1/2 inch. Dropped them at 50 yards with that set up. The new property has tons of birds and looking to get one with the compound.

Ithaca 10 guage Automatic with 34" extra full choke. Commonly known as the "ithagun". I shoot 3 1/2" copper coated 4/6 loads. This setup levels turkeys at 50 yards. :up:

I have an old Marlin 10Ga Bolt action Super Goose I may try this year. I've gone a couple times, but never got into turkey hunting much before. We'll see.

Ross, the shotguns you mentioned are all good enough for turkeys, get yourself a decent turkey choke for one of them, and some decent turkey loads, pattern to see what works

that all depends on what your gun likes......my turkey shotgun is a Mossberg 835, I use a Indian Creek Turkey choke (factory turkey choke is good) ammo I'm using 3.5" Winchester HV or HeviShot 13 #5
