Re: Rifle Hunting Turkeys; Anyone here do it?
I've been turkey hunting since the early 70's. I lived in Va. then and rifles were legal and still are. I've killed lots of birds with several different rifles. Light loaded 222, 22 mag, 22 hornet, 22 long rifle, round ball black powder, sabot pistol bullets with black powder. Most of mine at that time were body shots, in the wing base or high back. I quit about 1980 and went to shotgun only because i got more out of the calling than the shooting. You guys that head shoot, that's the way to go with a rifle. I still like fall hunting with open sight black powder round ball and body shots. It's just a matter of choice where legal and you gotta make it fun for you!
