Re: Who were your mentors?

D. Henry Shipes — Vernon, Florida...well, posthumously anyway. ;) Get out of the way Ben Lee, Tom Kelley, Ray Eye, Cove... Ole Henry might be the deadliest turkey hunter you’ve never heard of. Natural voice caller at that. Check out Netflix or YouTube’s archive of the movie “Vernon, Florida” (1981)....

Re: Benelli M2 Drilled & Tapped?

Unless y’all are neighbors, you’ll have to incur shipping costs. Any halfway reputable gunsmith can do it well and in minutes. Likely well under $40/hole.

Re: Harvest #s on hunting clubs

Obviously there are some small tracts that just “hold” a lotta turkeys. Maybe year after year. Great if that’s your place. However, for every oasis there’s at least one desert. On any sizable scale in your part of the world (where roost trees are well distributed), best I’ve heard of is a sustained ...

Re: How was your season?

I rated mine “average” a few weeks ago based on the number of turkeys that I connected with. But...as I reflect with the clarity of hindsight, it was one of the more gratifying seasons I’ve experienced in 42 years of trying to figure them things out. I met some willing turkeys and maybe few who were...

About $20/hole. Go with a 336 style mount (only 2 holes) for $40-ish.

Re: Options to replace Dura finish

Re: Spur length and Turkey age

The only thing I’ve ever been able to tell about age from the beards or spurs of any turkey I’ve killed is he’s as old as he’s gonna get. :scratch:

In a couple of those photos of 25+ lb birds, looks like your gun must weigh at least 15 lbs. Just its proximity...what are you shooting???

Re: 870 20 gauge Choke

Central, Clinton County. Hopefully I can get the barrel polished up and try again this weekend when the weather is better. I've done this in the past with multiple 12 gauges and was looking for a choke that would definitely throw a decent pattern to start with and haven't found that yet. With the m...

I shoot both bead and reflex sight. The latter was never a consideration until I discovered turkey chokes and paired them with LB’s or TSS.

Re: FF3- 3 moa or 8 moa

Personal choice. Either is fine...I’ve got both. Vastly prefer the 8 MOA for a scattergun. Much quicker acquisition for me with the 8. If the 8 is obscuring too much of a turkey, he’s either too far or too small to shoot.

Sweet shooting gun. Maybe my favorite among several 20’s. Don’t know what you plan to shoot through it, but can tell you that that Carlson 575 is extraordinarily tight with 1.625 ounces of TSS; at least it is with the 26” barrel. You’ll appreciate that dot...

Re: Drill and Tap 870

The receiver thins out in its forward section where the barrel flange inserts into the receiver. If you were to mount a full-length picatinny or Weaver rail, the 2 forward screws would likely fall in that thin part of the receiver and arguably not have sufficient “meat” to withstand the recoil of ho...
