Ditto that. Although I do like to bring along 1 box call when it is windy or birds are far away

That's a good price to start out with. I've got some skeet guns but I couldn't stand using those. Anybody have a mossberg 500 or rem. 870 worth the money ?


heres is a mossberg 9200 auto $250.

You don't need all of that to get started.

You don't "NEED" a vest.
You don't "NEED" a gps.
You don't "NEED" a scope!!!! I don't use one.
You don't "NEED" snakeboots strut seat (worth its weight in gold), a decoy or two just in case, Thermacell, Sawyer Permethrin
, or a rangefinder


YOu just "NEED" the basic stuff, Shotgun with turkey choke that patters well., turkey loads, turkey calls locator calls (owl or crow),camo, small gloves, half facemask, big game gun stamp and most important a place to go.

The other stuff is just things you will want to get once you figure out you like to turkey hunt. They make the hunt a little easier.

The other thing you "NEED" is a friend to take you a time or to until you know what you are doing. It takes the average turkey hunter 2-3 years to figure out how the game works.

That's a nice gun. I wish it was a little closer to home. I'm in Middle. By the time I payed the fuel bill to run over to pick that one up. I could have a new one from Walmart. heck of a deal on the gun tho.

Check the pawn shops. I was just in one earlier today in Smyrna and they had a bunch although I think they're priced high. Of course what they have on the tag and what they'd sell it for are two different things. They did have a Mossberg 835 solid black listed for $289.

$550-$650 would be a realistic number. Mossberg 535 is a good cheap shotgun that comes with fiber optic sights and comes in a bunch diffrent camo patterns for about $450. probably spend about $75 on ammo and choke( strut stopper by truglo works good in that gun.) decoys if you like the idea of carrying them around they are not a necesity. mouth call, slate, box call, owl and crow locator calls ought to be all you need probably $65. bug spray gloves and facemask your ready to go.

Come to think of it, I might know where one of these is for sale. A buddy of mine bought it new last year and was talking about selling it the other day. If interested send me a PM. He lives in Watertown but works in Nashville.
