Good looking pattern. With a pattern that tight I'd have to use a scope or shoot em all at 35 yards!

As far as scope or no scope question, I would definitely get one. I use a Leupold 1.5-4x20 on a saddle mount and love it.


I use a B Square with a turkey scope but I recently aquired a Leupold 2-7 Turkey plex NWTF Edition I am swapping to. I love a scope on a turkey gun.


I almost bought one of those scopes when I bought mine, but I figured I would never turn it past 4 power so i went with the 1.5-4. They will both work well though.

I agree. The one I'm replacing is a straight 2.5 power and it served me well. I got this 2-7 in a package deal so I'm going to put it to good use. It's better glass than my old one too.

I switched to magblends last year and love 'em. I also have a scope and B-square mount on my 835.

I'm trying to tell myself I dont need a scope and forget about it but can see where it would be nice at 40 yards +

I have only killed 4 birds so I'm rather a Novice at this Turkey stuff

40+ yds ain't where you need a scope, from muzzle to 25 yds is where you need a scope. I personally dont like a cope on my Turkey gun. You have good sights there i would sight her in at 10 yds and make sure you still have a good centered pattern at 40 and let her rip

Scope would be nice. But sometimes you gotta be extreme. Just dont think the scope would stay on when im belly crawling
