Hey Hawghunter65,  I was wondering what is the longest shot that you have made with the 12 ga. with 2 and 3/4 gun?

I have taken several with gun and 2 with bow.  Both bow have been in the fall while deer hunting.  I really want to get one in the spring with bow.  For me I just LOVE shooting the bow and watching the arrow travel to the target.

I voted bow because I like the challenge of having to get the bird real close and personal. With a gun it's there he is and done.  @--0--0109 I will be trying to film my turkey bow hunt this year.

I voted "other" on the poll but actually I use a knight TK2000 muzzleloading shotgun. I love it, great pattern out to 40 yards and when you shoot there is about a 10 second window till you see the flopping bird because of the smoke....

Is fun to play with the different load combinations also because you pour the loose shot sown the barrel.
