    TSS for turkeys?

    Ive shot relatively inexpensive LongBeard XR the last couple years in my 12ga and its a great load in almost any gun. This year i got the itch to try a 20ga and decided to go with TSS. Just got done patterning and with a $40 carlsons choke the 20ga is a easy 50+ yard gun. I think my 40yard...

    Slug Barrel for Turkey Shot

    Turkey hunting tips

    I think scouting is way under utilized for turkeys. Just like most animals, they have habits. If you figure that out your WAY ahead of the game. I have been watching a lot of the Pinhoti project with Dave Owens lately on youtube, that guy can kill turkeys! Its not super informational, but...

    Got this as a backup right before my elk trip but never actually used it while hunting. This bow is in great shape. Adjustable DL, 60-70lbs. Looking to sell bare bow for $730, or we can work out a deal if you want some of the items pictured. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
