Sportsman’s Warehouse Sales Associate Ben Doherty lists everything we need for a successful turkey hunt. "Turkeys have better eyesight than a bald eagle and almost have a 360° view so you want to go with camo from head to toe including your face net. When you get out there, a lot of people in the spring go with decoys because you are trying to pull a tom into a mating hen. Generally a 20gauge or a 12gauge, a 12gauge is more ideal. One of the main things is that you need to have a full choke tube. If you have a modified or improved choke. Without a full choke you don’t get the pattern that you need. These are hardy birds and you need to put a full load into the head and neck area. Also ground blinds will help you so that when you move around you will not be seen. A Jake blindis good. 12gauge loads, a four or five or a six shot and anywhere from 2 3/4 up to 3 1/2.
