They sell a turkey shot, any brand will do, they are all expencive.
Michigan calls for a minnimum of number #4 shot.
to put it in to perspective, any thing that will effectivly do a squirl will do a turkey.
I use remington express. High Brass..
the trick is know your pattern and range and calling a bird in to that range. Then dont shoot if there is a chance of hitting a second bird.
The three inch magnum will give you more shot at a greater range. A longer barrol with a full choke will give you a tighter pattern at a longer range.
find your self a target range where you can determine the prime range for your gun and selected round.
place up a few bails of hay or something to mount a peice of card board.
get a paper plate and mount that on the card board.
draw a turkey head on the plate just for fun.
walk back about 60-90 feet and let a round fly in to the plate. if you have a tight pattern with only a cople stray pellets out side the plate you may have a longer range and can back up another 10 feet and shoot again.
if you have a wide pattern with spray out side the peramiter of the paper plate then you will have to shoot at a closer range..
not to worie, I have gotten turks to come with in 10 feet of me.
all of your shots are going to be walking or standing.
they can easuly be taken with a bow as well,
They have good eye site and good hearing. The sport is not the shot but the calling them in to range. The reward is a nice fan tail and a beard plaque and dinner for 6 just so long as you make a head shot and dont fill the bird full of shot.
