Patterning My Shotgun
On Monday morning I was able to get to the range just in time to see a flock of turkeys crossing down below me in the fields. It was a beautiful site to see. It made the urgency to get my new Stoeger shotgun and Bushnell scope sighted in even higher.
Now I can practice shooting for a few weeks before the season opener. I was shooting 2 3/4'' shells with number seven and a half shot for the ham and bacon shoot. When I go turkey hunting I will be using 3'' shells with number five shot.
Have you sighted in your shotgun or crossbow for the Pennsylvania spring turkey season yet? What broadheads or shotgun loads do you prefer for spring turkey?
