LuckyJbird, i was just yanking your chain about the 40 pellets in the head, of course that aint possible. But its not unethical to shoot a turkey at 70 yards if YOU HAVE THE EQUIPMENT TO DO IT. EThics is putting the animal down without it suffering, which we have done at 70 yards 3 times, and they never flopped, moved, twitched, you name it. THe shot was right down into a bottom so nobody was in there, so the shot was perfectly safe. And i said "power", not "powder" you other guys. Read it right guys. I was also yankin your chain about the "Lucky" thing. YOu probably are a very skilled hunter, otherwise you wouldnt be using a great website like turkey and turkey hunting, the best in my opinion. But I will say this to all of you. People are spending $1200 on a new Beretta, and it dont got the killing power of the mossberg, i'm sorry, but thats a fact, i;ve watched all the shows where their using the Berettas and the turkeys flop all around and keep flopping for a while. We have only ever had 2 turkeys flop after shooting it with the Mossberg, and thats not BS as you guys would say. As for the 70yard thing, it the same as shoting a deer at 200yards with a shotgun. Most people say you cant do it, But there are guns and shells that will do it, like the new Hornady sabots. Most people have it engrained in their minds that the turkeys gotta be 40 yards or closer, and they never tried further so you cant say that its unethical to shoot a turkey at 70 yards just because you dont have the equipment to do it and havent tried it. And as for the "Forbbiden Zone", we call it that because nobody but us is allowed to go there on the farm, although people hunt on other parts of the farm. Its our special place. I dont wanna argue with you guys either and would really like to be friend with you all, but you guys gotta drop your pride and get it put of your heads that its unethical to shoot a tueky at 70 yards if you can put them done with one sot, AND THEY NEVER FLOP(THAT AINT BS< ITS TRUE, I SWEAR ON MY MOSSBERG). Peace out ya'll.
Hunt for thunder chickens for months at a time...you know that's right
