    1st turkey hunt yesterday, no turkey but a great day in the woods with my friend Dave..Will try again in a day or two
    Now I`ve always hunted ducks,geese etc with a 12 gauge. The 3" turkey load in a 12 is a bit much for me, I wussied out and picked up a used Mossberg 500 youth model 20 Guage, Man its much nicer to shoot and a lot lighter to pack in the woods all day, patterns good to.. Anyone here use a 20 ??

    I have a 20 but use a 12 gauge 3'' Remington 870.I used to own a 835 Mossy talk about a land cannon with 12ga 3 1/2. 20 gauge is plenty and should do the trick with the right choke and shell combonatin
