NSSF Shows How to Pattern Your Shotgun for the Turkey Opener

This tutorial from the National Shooting Sports Foundation will show how to pattern your shotgun for the turkey opener.

Have a look as the NSSF provides a quick lesson and range demo on how to pattern your shotgun for the turkey opener.

Knowing how your shot and choke work on your shotgun can be the difference between a tom on the ground or a flaring bird that you will never see again this spring.

Patterning the spread of a shotgun was something we did not think about much years ago, but it is important to get a good idea on the range to know how your shot spread hits.

It can vary from gun to gun, and with a full turkey choke you have to know how the pellets will hit so that you can make that clean kill, while understanding how it patterns at various ranges. Taking the time to do this before the spring opener is as important as scouting to improve your chances of bagging a tom.

Make sure to pattern your shotgun for the turkey opener.
