Re: Goulds mounts made it home

Your gobblers head is very realistic, great paint job. Most mounted gobblers have to much red IMO but this one looks like the real thing. :thumbup:

Re: Question for the guru’s

As everyone else has said your hunting buddy should try a .410 with TSS.
For added recoil protection he could add a limbsaver to the gun.
Can't blame him for wanting to hunt hope he does well. :thumbup:

Re: Green Swamp WMA in Florida

The Green Swamp sounds like a tough place to kill a gobbler and the numbers don't lie. If I read the 2018 harvest report correctly there were 44 turkeys killed. The swamp consists of 50,000 acres. Again I could be wrong but those are the numbers I saw. I couldn't tell how many hunters there were the...

Re: What turkey gun?

Is there any advantage with a 3" 12 over a 3" 20 other then pellet count? pellet count mostly 12 gauge vs 20 gauge is a common discussion lots of opinions on this and many like a 20 over a 12. This of course is based on shooting TSS. Really TSS in a 20ga is plenty. I normally shoot a 12ga and just ...

Re: why 9 over 8 tss?

Hey DIRTNAP 2.50oz #8 has 635 pellets and #9 has 905 pellets so you gain 270 pellets with 9's assuming 362/oz. I load and shoot 9's but load 8's for a few buddies that are sold on 8's all in the 12ga. From first hand experience I don't see a huge advantage of 8's over 9's in the 12. My buddies shoot...

Re: Are turkeys going the way of the quail

I heard Eddie Salter talk about this recently at a local sporting goods store in Kentucky. He made a good point, he said that insects are a large part of a wild turkeys diet and now days a lot of pesticides are being sprayed in fields where they weren't before. He specifically mentioned Alabama wher...

Well at 704 am girlfriend layed one out with 1187 with factory full at around 40 yds. 1187 20ga may be on the heavy side but there is not much recoil with them.
That'll work congratulations!
The 870 weighs 6.5lbs and has a little recoil shooting 3" 1-5/8oz but nothing like the 8lb9oz 12ga.

Re: Remington 870 20ga factory full

I tried the factory full and IC .555 shooting bead POI is a little low/right but huntable. Factory full did okay didn't count numbers but decent kinda open. The IC .555 put 270's/10 at 40 didn't count 20" but looked good. This is Hals Big 20 NC Speed at 55 yards with IC .555 got 177/10. This is back...

Vortex Venom performance when wet?

Okay guys I'm thinking about putting a Vortex Venom on my 870 20ga. I've researched lot's of posts and reviews. Lots of option for mounting to gun I get that and actual performance of the sight seems great. What concerns me is performance when wet. For example crawling on a gobbler in a green field ...

Re: Turkey populations in your area

Lots of good input here guys, there are a lot of factors as you all know: weather/bad hatches, predators, disease, hunters killing over the limit. My guess is bad spring weather and hatches play a big part but only part of the problem. I'm sure they already do in most states but each state Wildlife ...

Re: Remington 870 20ga factory full

Okay thanks for the feedback.
Going with the 20 late in the season so I'll use what I have either full or IC .555. Using factory bead so hopefully POA/POI is on.
I'll fine tune gun after season is over.

Remington 870 20ga factory full

Hey GN I bought a 870 20ga 26" barrel NIB and bought a factory full to try with TSS.
What is the constriction of factory full?
I've got an IC 555 on the way but want to try the full just to see.

Thanks in advance.
