While mosquitoes buzz around my eyes and ears...and the tics make a crawl towards my nuts. You almost have me talked into it, keep talking.

Have you ever killed one??
I don't think I've ever even seen one while hunting them. The absolute most retarded thing to do on a spring morning. Yet you guys talk me into it being fun EVERY year. I ain't falling for it this year. Catch me on the river!

I'm sorry Dave but hearing a gobbler get fired up and coming into my calls gobbling his fool head off every few steps gets my adrenaline going better than virtually any buck I've ever seen.

Besides after you spend the morning acting like a love sick slutty turkey you spend the afternoon hunting morels and ramps. That's a great way to spend a spring day.

TSS isn't cheap to shoot, that is the only Con I see for not using it... I looked and researched alot over the fall and have settled on Apex ammo.
On a apex ammo box it states no smaller than .555 for 20 gauge so I'm leaning more toward a Tru Lock choke similar to what Dave Owens is using.


If your wanting to binge on some good turkey hunting videos give THE PINHOTI PROJECT a watch on YOUTUBE. This guy doesnt deliver great kill shot vids but is in my opinion the best on the web at killing birds all over the US.

Heres a great video on his setup and I think you'll like it..

YES 👍🏼 👍🏼 on the Pinhoti Project. That’s some good entertainment right there!
