I'm sure there are more but if any one wants a challenge that is into small targets at
long distance try shooting Turkeys in the neck at 200+ yards.

It is very good practice for taking long shots on big game and it will also test your equipment
shooting sub 1'' moving target at more than 200 yards.

To hit the head you and your rifle "MUST" be capable of less than 1/2 MOA @ 200+ the neck
is much smaller and the rifle should be capable of 1/4 MOA accuracy.

Where I hunt turkeys they become wary after a few days and hold up at ranges well beyond
shotgun range and the accurate rifle is the answer to this condition.

Turkeys have great hearing but, no external ears, field of vision about 270 degrees, see in color but don't see well at night. They can see movement almost a hundred yards away, poor sense of smell and not as easy to hunt as one would think.

I agree 100% but I'd add another 400yds to the distance they can pick up movement !!!!! At least if I'm hunting them !!


Highknob,

I worked a lot on my shotgun last year with chokes/loads...managed to extend my 40yd killing pattern out to 50yds. Course I've never attempted a shot past 37yds but should I ever NEED to it's better to know it's capable.

ONLY THREE AND A HALF MONTHS TO GO.
