    My first Turkey with this new gun. It's a 62 cal and I was shooting what I would call the caywood load with corn muffin mix mixed with my 1 1/8 oz #6 shot hard lead. It was a 25 yard shot. 20190508_064205.jpg

    Good stuff. Congrats.

    If I notice correctly only one feller took a long shot at turkey this spring and IIRC he did no fancy loading!

    I did not weigh him but he had 1 5/16 spurs. That's pretty big for this area so I would say he was an older bigger 20190508_065202.jpg bird
