Camo and found some turkey loads to try
« on: November 12, 2019, 05:53:48 PM »
Iím guessing it helps to wear a face net camo one so only your eyes are exposed. Iíve heard turkeys have good eye sight just thought I would check here. Found some federal number 5 and Kent diamond shot number 6ís to try in my benelli nova to see how they pattern later they where on sale.

Honestly, It's really about being motionless when you are in sight.

I wear a camo top and blue jeans, and kill turkeys every year.

That's my experience.

But, confidence counts, and more camo cant hurt.

Good luck!

I always say that birds have the best awareness. Ducks and turkey especially. I think full camo is a great way to go with turkey. Especially calling them close. Any movements will have the birds on edge if not running or flying well out of range. Iím newer to turkey hunting but have had great success. For sure a fun season to add!

I have a pale complexion so I always wear a head covering snugged up around my eyes. Turkey detect movement with their eyes as opposed to being discerning. As was stated, cover yourself as much as you can while you are knocking the rust off your turkey skills and hold very still.
Federal makes great stuff. I'm not a fan of kent for hunting, but your shotgun will tell you what it likes. Expect to drop some bills on ammo while you pattern and sight in. Once you get sighted and pick a round you can strech a box out over a few season.
