I suspect that you're not the "odd man out" when it comes to most turkey hunters. I receive many inquiries each month about various chokes, shotshells, etc. from readers that visit my site. Most, once they find something they like, do not shoot at a lot of paper. It's only when they aren't satisfied with what they are shooting that they shoot a number of targets.
There is what amounts to a pretty small group of NWTF style still target shooters, who shoot at various sites around the country. A few are proflific with posts and have also posted pictures of targets and discussed their patterns with different chokes and shotshells. Most just shoot in competiton, for the enjoyment and challenge of the shoots, and you don't really hear much from them unless you're at a shoot.
There is also a group of shooters who shoot year round at paper targets, trying to improve their patterns. In the last couple of years, a small group of shooters have emerged who load their own turkey shells and are constantly experimenting with different types and sizes of shot. It's very interesting to follow their progress in load development. Some of these discoveries may lead to better turkey loads in the years to come.
One concern that I have is that expectations have been set, at times, to unreasonable levels. What is necessary to kill a turkey, bears very little resemblence to some of the targets that I see posted and discussed. All that's really needed is a good even pattern at whatever distance you plan to shoot, plus maybe a little further for insurance, in case you misjudge the distance.
So, I'd say that you are in the majority of turkey hunters. You've found a combo that works and use it to kill turkeys. That's really what it's all about!
