Turkey Hunting in North Carolina
Remington Nitro Turkey
Yesterday, I took some shots at my turkey targets to get my gun patterned it.
I have the Mossberg 500 with 28' accuvent barrel.
Using a stock full choke that came with the gun, and using Remington Nitro turkey 3' #5 shot - I consistantly put about 20 shot in the kill zone at 45 - 50 yards.
Up til that point, I was planning on buying a
X full or XX full turkey choke, but now I am
thinking of not even bothering since where I hunt at - the longest shot I will have will be around 35 to 40 yards due to wood lines, ditch bank, trees, etc.
But as this will be my first year turkey hunting, I want to hear what the more experienced have to say:
Will the turkey choke benefit me or would I be spending money on a choke for a gun that will do just fine without it?
