I have a shooting dysfunction that only gets me while I'm pattering my gun, not shooting turkeys. My gun pops me in the cheekbone and it smarts, sometimes making me flinch on future patterning shots. Now I don't flinch come turkey time, but what am I doing wrong? I shoot a M'berg 835 ulti w/ 3.5 shells.
Thanks for any input!

Get a Remington. I've never shot the Mossberg, but everybody I've talked to said it kicks like a mule.

I shoot a Rem 870 with 3.5" shells and after a box or two I get the flinches too. Come turkey time, no problem at all. You might try a Caldwell's Lead Sled, I bought one back before deer season to sight in my guns, even a 12ga slug feels like a small caliber rifle.... great investment.

I shoot the same gun and it does kick like a mule. My first shot got me in the cheek also and it was sore for a week. I just had to tweak my shooting position a bit which makes it kinda uncomforatable from normal shooting but you get used to it after a little practice. I usually rest my cheek on every gun i shoot, but with this one i have to keep it raised off the stock just a bit.

Try a red dot, my face never touches the gun when pulling the trigger. When dialing mine in I put it in a good vice and line it up, no use in punishing yourself. I've never felt it go off when turkey hunting.

The 835 packs a punch and really no way to make it stop, but you can limit the amount of punishment you take.

If you are just trying to make sure your gun in throwing a good pattern try and shoot light loads. This works well for me! I range 20, 30, and 35 yards with my rangefinder and shoot light loads. If the pattern looks good and at point of aim then I will shoot a turkey load at 40. With the price of turkey shells you can eat up alot of money and wear out your cheek and shoulder. JMO

Thanks. Sounds like I need a cheek pad! LOL! Isn't that funny how none of us feel the recoil when we kill a bird?
