First choice is my PSE, Evo 7, 62 lb draw. Going to try out Grim Reapers this year. If I carry a shotgun, it'll be a Mossberg 835 with an Ulti Mag choke and Winchester's Turkey Load 3" #4's.
Just watched 12 hens and 3 long beards walk across my field right behind front of the house :D

Remington 870 with an Undertaker choke, simple,cheap, reliable ever year.
Should be a good hunt, birds had it easy this winter.

Mossberg 500 with mod choke because I use 3" hornady loads with the versatite wad. I have some longbeard xr ammo I want to get to but I need to fill some tags to burn up my old ammo.

Thanks guys, much appreciated.
From the reviews it sounds like they are one of the best loads out there right now.
Best of luck turkey hunting, not much longer now.

Benelli Supernova 12G, carlson longbeard ported choke, winchester long beard 3" #5. Ive patterned it and Iam pretty happy with the results but this is my first full year hunting so no real clue what Iam talking about yet. About a month left before opener so time will tell how well this set up works. Cant wait!
