I hunted this gobbler this past sat on our opener day and laid him out with a 12ga muzzleloader. It was kinda comical watching him ( turkey ) trying to sneak in on a pair of hen & jake decoys. I spot him at about 50yrds with his neck out stretch looking my way and it took this bird about another 8mins to get a movin and when he was directly in front of my dugout, I lay him out with shot. details: Osceola Turkey ( aka simply as Florida Turkey ) weight = 17.4lbs distance = 27yrds approx beard = 8" spurs = 7/8 & 3/4 inch weapon = 12ga Tominator Shotgun Muzzleloader w/2x Leupold Turkey scope load = 1.25oz of #5s, load in a modify remington cup and sitting on a 1/8" cardboard and felt wad and capped with a thin overshot wad,all fired off with 80grs of triple7. This load has been good out of this setup to 40yrds. choke = .665 sorry about the picture quality. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
