Thanks guys, I was happy to fill my tag this year since I didn't get one in the spring or fall last year. Good luck next week Andy. 16 is my favorite as well Andy, the H&R gets the call for for everything except waterfowl. I have an old Springfield 311 sxs in 16 gauge for a dedicated waterfowl gun, this picture is from last fall when a doubled on a pair of ringnecks.

Some good looking birds, & some good stories. No luck for me this year, but I took my 9 y/0 boy with me. Had fun but he's a bit fidgety for the turkey woods. I tell ya I may be going with a NEF for turkey. Lugging that mossberg 835 was like carrying a 8 ft 4X4.

I dont care what gun Im using as long as Im hunting

My son was like that when he was 9. I actually bought a blind back then because of it, I needed to keep all that movement concealed. You'll like a NEF for the turkey woods, I wouldn't want to take anything else turkey hunting.

I agree the NEF/ H&R singles rock when hiking through the woods. Weather it's out of the box stock or modifed to your taste. They are simple and make you take that first clean kill shot.

Got mine today in Michigan. 6 1/4 beard, 15 lb jake. Used regular Pardner 12 gauge mod choke with 3" Nitro #5's. 20 yards, dropped right there and a couple flops if any. Great start to the Memorial Day weekend.

Congrats godogz! I used that same #5 load on my first turkey back when I had my 12 gauge. It hits like the hammer of Thor.

I agree about the ammo. The gobblers do not move/flop much if at all. The Nitro #5 patterns pretty good with my modified choke barrel on my Pardner and works great up to 30 yrds. That ol basic single shot was more than happy to do the job.

I'm curious, how did you mount the rail on your gun? Epoxy? Congratulations on a nice tom too.
