28 ga. & .410 turkeys

Post by hawglips » October 29th, 2012, 9:58 am

We lost the thread on small bore turkeys a while back when sections were consolidated, so figured we ought to start another one.

Let's see some pics of 28 ga and .410 turkeys.


Here's a couple taken with my CZ Woodcock 28 ga, 1-5/16 oz of TSS 9s.

All were shot with the TSS 9 loads.

I too regret the loss of that thread, so here are a couple of 28 ga birds from the last several years.

I'd love to hunt them with a 28 gauge but it's illegal here in the socialist state of Illinois. Everyone know a 28 gauge won't kill a turkey.. :violent1:

Here's another one I killed yesterday with the CZ 28 ga 1-5/16 oz of #9s, XFull barrell.

It was at 44 yards, and the bird never flopped, never flapped, never twitched. I'm falling in love with this little gun.

That CZ is one beautiful little gun. I'm a sucker for case hardening.

WM:
I in no way intend to "one up" my buddy Hal nor do I condone turkey sniping. But, the top picture in my post above was a turkey killed at 53 steps. No flop, no twitch! I did it on purpose and I will never look back! TSS is the real deal. Thx Hal!

Hunted Friday morning, never hearing a gobble till I finally coaxed one out at 11:30 a.m. He was dead at 11:40 when the 28 gauge spoke. It was real open in the thinned pines where I found him, so I went ahead and shot him at what turned out to be 40 long steps...

I enjoyed the good SC hospitality!
