Well now that trapping season is winding down, it's time to start talking turkey. Anybody else gonna head out to get 'em one? I just went to Gander Mtn. and got a new turkey gun. I got a Mossberg 835 magnum new for 219 bucks. I couldn't pass that up for that price. Now I can reseve my glossy Remington 11-87 for small game and bird hunting instead of using it for both. Good luck to everybody who's going to be hitting the woods for turkey, and be safe.

I love them allright, but they do dish out a wholoping out of a pump with a Ulti full choke.

Yep, two rounds and I have a bruise the next day. But it's worth it. :D

Trying with a bow again this year. Missed one last year when the broadhead hit the side of the blind. I did manage to kill a hen this fall that I'm planning on mounting for a decoy this spring. Hopefully i will get it mounted after I get the traps put up.

Haven't got the bug yet!

I hope you don't shoot expandables, because I highly doubt they would make it through that mesh with out expanding. Just some food for thought.

That's good to know, I just started shooting the Steelheads. You should try Wasp Jackhammer SST's they have a 1.75 inch cutting diameter in the 100 grain model and are expandables, I'm thinking about switching after seeing what they do on deer from my uncle. They'd be good for turkey, and as I said my uncle uses them on deer. It drops them deader than a door nail. He did shoot a turkey with a Jackhammer this year, but after he killed it it flopped around for a LONG time and he looked forever and didn't find it.

I'm ready. Just hope it doesn't snow and freeze two weeks into it like it did last year. Gave all our toms lockjaw.

A friend of mine uses them very succesfully. Cuts their heads clean off. He has killed quite a few gobblers using them.

Here's a link to a video of the gilotines in action. The seem to do their jobs quite efficiently if you ask me. I don't know how well they would stand up to a shot in the body though, I would think those long skinny blades would break off. Hope you're a real good shot and can hit a tennis ball from 25 yards. Anywho, here y'all go:
