I had heard that to be an expert turkey hunter the most challenging weapon to use is a .410 due to Mohican sneek necessary to get so close and marksmanship required to such a small amount of powder and lead. My smallest was 870 12ga, 3 inch , number 4s

My first turkey gun was a Mossberg 500 12 gauge shooting 3" shells. My son killed his first one two years ago with a Mossberg 500 Bantam 20 gauge and 3" shells. Hoping to get him #2 in the morning.

20 gauge with 3" mags or 12 gauge with 2 3/4 mags. One was first gun for my son and second was my first turkey gun.
To old to be Mohican sneaking and don't want to have to be a great marksman so I use enough to get the job done and then some.

Killed 2 of mine with a 20 gauge this year, I may just start using it all of the time. I have killed with a 870 Wingmaster 12 gauge fixed modified choke and 2 3/4" shells, had to be close on that one.

May switch to a 20 myself.

My father-in-law's gun shoots a better pattern than my 12 \:D

I killed my 3rd longbeard this season with my dads Benelli M1 20ga. First one ever for me with a 20. May start carrying it quite a bit, its a couple lbs lighter than my SBE2.
