I know everybody talks about how far they've killed a turkey. Ok, how close have you killed one? The closest I've ever killed one was 20 yards.

back in the day when you could shoot pellets larger than #4, I took the head completely off with a load of nickle 3's at 11 yards

20 yards for me but it was a jake. I did call a longbeard up to 20 for my son.

I have had a bearded hen walk by me where I could have touched her with the gun barrel....

Killed my closest at 16 steps.

I was set up under an ledge and had a gobbler come all the way down a mountain and I killed him on that ledge at 5 yards # 6 shot modified choke.. That was my first turkey. That day I learned you need to set up where a gobbler cant see your setup. I would hate to try a shot at that range with my mossberg 835 extra full choke and hevi shot magnublends!

My very first bird...about 8 yards if the winchester turkey shell would have not been a dud... instead it was about 20 yards by the time I smacked my O/U to set the second trigger so i could get off a shot..
