Default Turkey Beware

Okay... been out busting my shoulder testing the patterns of some loads.

Think I'm ready. Hope there are some turkeys still alive after the winter.





Those Magnum Blends kick like a horse!

Look at all that lead shot that is going to end up on your dinner table.

That's funny Critter.

You guys only save a couple small pieces off of each breast so you'll be fine.

Bite your tongue.

Even with all the tendons in the legs and thighs I'll save it all. It makes fantastic soup. I would almost rather have the soup than the breast, but if you put them both together you have a fantastic meal.

No worries.. those #7's will probably bounce off the feathers at 40yrds.

I'll aim for the eyeball instead of mid-neck to be safe. Thanks!

Lethal load--that is actually a really impressive group. What brand are you shooting?

Goob, what would a pattern like that do to your "turkey head cheese" recipe?

Trying to decide between my 300 Ultra Mag or the 6.5 Creedmoor for my WY turkey hunt.

Any suggestions?

Just talked to Karl. He says your .300 Ultra might be a little under-powered for those Wyoming thunder chickens.
