hey all!
first timer, been a looong time since i went hunting and figured i would give turkeys a shot (ha ha)...NYS DEC opened up turkey hunting here on Long Island (fall only so far) for a 4 day season, so i am going to try to get a bird for the fryer...will be using a blind (fully enclosed), a rossi single shot 20ga, and i am practicing some mouth calls (mostly kee-kee-run), thoguht i might get a decoy to try it out, i need to get to the range to do some patterning, any good ammo to try? ...any advice would be greatly appreciated!!

the best advice i can give you is to keep practicing with your calls and the most important is patience and more patience. as far as ammo i use winchester supreme #5 its cheap about $12 at wal-mart and gets the job done, but differ guns like differ ammo. good luck

Welcome to the forum natureboy68. I have been visiting this site for a few months now and I can tell you this is an excellent place to get questions answered by some experienced and seasoned hunters.

I agree with kygobbler; keep practicing with those mouth calls as much as you can and make sure that your gun gives you a tight and consistent pattern that you're happy with. Again, reiterating what kygobbler is saying, every gun has their preference for certain kinds of ammo. I don't know a whole lot about rossi's, as I have never shot one, but I have found that Winchester makes quality ammunition to suite any of your hunting needs. With that being said, however, I have switched from Winchester to Heavy-Shot because I got a tighter choke that was designed to shoot that brand of shells.

What type of choke will you be using?
