I'm gearing up to see if I can stand turkey hunting this year. I'm not one for sitting still in the forest, so it may not be my cup of tea. I'm surprised how gear intensive it can be. I have camo pants and shirt, but needed gloves, hat, face mask, and cloaking device... I picked up a slate call an was pleasantly surprised to find it easy to use. I have my clucks and purrs figured out... Now the gun conundrum...most of my shotguns are long barreled, not sky busters, but 28 inches on average. None of them are leverage friendly in a seated position. I'm thinking my 26 inch Citori might be the ticket. It's that or I'm crazy enough to test my 25 inch 28 gauge on a pattern board with the full choke and a load of #5's. I'm hoping to be up out of the sage in the higher elevations that I've seen birds. Ticks and I are not good friends at all. That said, I'm looking into nasty chemicals that would discourage them if they're around. The upside of all of this is a real good excuse for Islander and me to go visit IveofIone because he lives in turkey central. Lots to do before the season opens, so I better get my butt going... Anyone else going after turkeys this spring?
