Beauty! I was out on the weekend and lots of birds. Almost got the big one and settled for a jake for first tag. The 3.5" shells with a turkey choke smoke them but it kicks like a mule.

Congrats on getting a bird mooseslayer ! Ya 3 1/2 s are a bit much in my opinion but to each their own .ive alwayd just used 2 3/4 cause my guns only chambered for them but doo-doo my buddys with 3 1/2s and was really suprised at the punch .almost like my 300 win mag !....havent decided if il try for another bird or not.

Beauty bird !!  A gourmet chefs delight  . I had some jake meat from a buddy ...soooo  good  !!

In my much younger day we never had the chance to hunt turkey ....only pheasants  and grouse & I remember using shotguns with poly chokes and using 6 & 7-1/2 shot size ......#4 for ducks & #2 for geese & jacks . ...all lead shot .
