Black turkey guns

Postby Shotgunner12 » Mon Mar 11, 2013 8:18 pm

Just asked about this to the duck guys but I was wonderin if y'all turkey hunter hunters could help me out. I absolutely love chasin turkeys. Iv been huntin with my Winchester 1400 for a long time. But I'm lookin for a new duck gun. I will use it for turkeys though too. Will a gun with a black finish be alright for turkeys? I know they got some dang good eyes. Thanks
Hand me some more shells!

A black gun will be fine. Movement is what gives you away in the woods or swamp. I still use a wood and blue shotgun, I don't even wear a facemask anymore for turkeys or ducks. Don't move when they are looking, it is as simple as that.

I sure know wat u mean about movin. Every bird I have killed has either been with my dad's mossberg 500 or my winchester 1400. Both wood stocked and blued. I have never hunted with a black gun is why I asked. thanks for the input.

Wood stock and shiny blued barrel is fine for turkeys.

I shot one this past Fall at less than 5 yds with a black 870, a black pullover, no facemask, brown brush pants and brown boots. I think the key is to be still. If you don't move, then they probably aren't going to see you. I plan on shooting a few more in the coming weeks with the black gun

Here's a picture from the hunt that I mentioned before. This is what you get in Nebraska. Limit of ducks in the morning and turkeys in the afternoon

I didn't own a camo or black gun until I was 18 yrs old. Everything before that fell to a shiny 870 Wingmaster with wood stocks.

even though I own both camo and black... i'll dig on myself. camo guns only attract hunters. birds don't care either way.

No, there is no way it would ever work. No turkeys have ever been shot with a black, or shiny blued gun. :fingerpt:

Yes, it will work just fine. Movement is way more important than camo pattern.
