What shotgun are you planning on Turkey Hunting with ? I have used a TTN double with 26 inch barrels in the past and it worked fine . Now I want to take a few birds with a 87 .

After work I grabbed the 87 and a box of ammo . I wanted to check my pattern , the long barreled 87 with a Turkey tube does a great job . Happy Hunting to all the Turkey Hunters .

There are no wild turkeys across the big pond. So, good luck to you.

What about the wood grouse, aka Auerhahn, or Tjadertupp

The 87 did a great job on a Big Tom . This bird had a 11 inch beard . and his spurs were a 1 1/8 , sharp as a needle .

Spring Turkey season is over and I had a Great season . The 87 fired 2 shots and killed 2 Turkeys . I was pleased with the shotgun and the bp ammo I loaded . I used # 5 shot and it worked like a charm . This past Sunday we grilled the legs and thighs off both birds and they were good , BUT  it won't be as good as the deep fried breast . Looking forward to the fall shotgun season now .

I recently came up with a long barreled 1897 . It has a 30 inch barrel with a FULL choke . I can't wait to try it in the field .  ;D

The Turkey's are eaten and they were excellent . So this year I will probably go back to using my ttn double . I decided not to use the original 1897 . I decided to just keep beating up my TTN . The 1887 that I used last year was a fun gun to hunt with an did a great job dispatching 2 Turkeys . Hope everyone has a safe and successful season . Good luck and Happy Hunting .

Do we have any bird hunters out there . What about Duck Hunters . This should be the time when the Hunters are in the field .

Yep.  Upland season is over for us.  Never got into duck hunting.  Cold wet and hungry is no way to go through life.  Much prefer my Citori Feather for pheasant, but picked up a 20 ga. Darne a couple years ago for grouse.
