These tips on determining your shotgun’s effective range will give you the confidence when to shoot that big tom this season.
Cabela’s gives some great tips on how to understand what is your max range for your shotgun and ammo. They also discuss how to test how much brush you can confidently shoot through to down a turkey in those more challenging situations.
Some very good tips on figuring out your shooting limit for your gun. Ensure you have at least a good ten or twelve pellets in a nice tight group on the neck and head and you are in business.
The shooting through brush on a target is also genius and something I have never seen before. Turkey hunters have at one time or another had a scenario where a turkey comes in, but is behind some light foliage, so trying this out on a range target through different types of brush will let you know what kind of shots you can take and still down a bird.
