which gun to take?

Postby WIgunner30 » Fri Apr 18, 2008 11:13 pm

I have everything laid out and ready to go but i am having a hard time deciding what gun to take turkey hunting this year. i have a winchester 1300 3" with a 22" barrel with a undertaker choke a winchester SX3 3 1/2 with a 26"barrel and a undertaker and a Browning BPS 3" in camo with a 26" barrel with a x full briley choke. all three guns pattern execlent. for five years i used the 1300 and shot 5 toms with it. last year i shot a jake at 45yrds with the SX3. Last week i picked up that BPS and am itching to try it out on a bird. what would u guys take? i think there all good choices. i kinda like the fact the SX3 shoots 3 1/2 even though i dont think i need that big of shell cause 3" worked for me before. My season is only 5 days long and i usually only get one good shot at a tom. i do have a later season towards the end of may here in wisconsin .

Stick with what works. However I traded my Franchi I12 in on a Benelli M2 in the new Realtree APG and bought an Undertaker choke the night before the season opened. I was alittle nervous going out in the woods with minimal patterning. If you want to take the new gun, I say go for it, it worked for me :thumbsup:

take whatever your the most confortable with. whatever patterns the best, your choice. if they all pattern great then take the one you most wanna use
