Then why not throw a basketball at him to start with?? If he is on the run chances are he is further then the first shot so that softball is now a basketball anyways.

Again just don't make sense to me. If it does you and you like the idea roll on.

I love my tight pattern. Just shoot it like a rifle and no worries.

Its not like I sit there with a range finder and say wait till they hit 75 yards then shoot. I hunt some pretty steep stuff and unless im set up where I have checked distances then its just a guess until i shoot. Not to mention when I pattern my gun. I will usually take 2 or 3 shots at 70 and I always have 6 to 10 pellets at least in the kill zone on a turkey target. 60 is the distance that I feel confident knocking them down a large majority of the time, but its not too far off 70.


I agree Roost. Embarrassing. I always hear about these guys that pattern shoot at 70 yards but I've never seen anyone do it or post a pic of a pattern. I know a guy (known liar) that claims his gun puts 150 pellets in a 10" circle and kills em dead at 80 yards. Whatever man. You want to impress me learn how to get them inside 40 yards.

I usually dont miss on the 1st. I am confident out to 60. Shot one last year at 74, even though I would rather them be much closer. I pattern with both and they pattern similar, the hevi is just a tiny bit better, by no means is the kent Crappy in my book. If I used all kent I would still be very confident.

74yds?

No range finder but 74 yds? Sounds like over estimation or atleast one could hope

im not scared to shoot one at 70.. would I want to? well no.. but sometimes those old stubborn long beards don't do what you want them to do so you gotta reach out and touch them. my longest shot is 59 yards. but most are within 40 yards. call me a nut or whatever you want to. but I know where my gun hits and I know my ability. I suppose im a nut to.

The way I look at this is the ol gobbler won on that day and lives to be hunted another day...I have too much respect for the animal to risk wounding by taking a LONG shot...Like I said earlier, the older I get the nore I enjoy HUNTING turkeys.
74yds IMHO is just too far.....

"I know my ability". You mean "I hope the magic pellet hits the magic spot". There are some great turkey hunters on this site that I admire, then there are some clowns that remind me why Old Gobbler has a rule that you can't even mention shots over 40 yards. One guy says 45, one says 50, next thing you know you got guys with magic guns shooting birds at 70 plus yards. It's a sad commentary on hunters in general. No wonder non hunters think we are a bunch of blood thirsty fools shooting at anything that moves.
