How many of attend Turkey shoots. And if you use a stock gun what is the best choke for #9 shot?

I have been to some of these shoots and I use a rem. 870 or a rem 1100. The 870 has a full choke and the 1100 has a modified choke both work great but I prefer the 870 I'm a pump gun fan

Pattern your gun to see where the center of the pattern is, after that its mostly luck to get a pellet dead center of whatever mark they use. We hold turkey shoots in the fall, and ham shoots in the spring at my club, and a 10 year old with a 410 will sometimes win with the "magic BB " Its great family fun. I usually use turkey chokes in my Red Label.

What do they usually charge for a Turkey shoot? Might try to have something like this at my club.

not sure why they stopped (VFW put them on), but its been years since they have had a turkey shoot around here.

seem to remember it was $5 (might of been $10) per shooter per round.

6 or 8 shooters in a round.

all shooters shotguns in a round were laid on a table and you were allowed to shoot yours or anybody else's if you wanted to.

of course winner in each round won a turkey.

if there was enough women present they would do an all girl round(s). same with kids.

it was a good money maker for them. no idea why they stopped doing them. probably some kind of liability bs.

Volunteer fire dept. of a small nearby town used to put on an interesting shoot. 10 shooters per relay, each shooter had three balloons (about 6") tied to top of a 2' long dowell @ 100 yards.

Any rifle, any sight, offhand w/no artificial support.
Shooters had 3 shots, most balloons broken won, ties broken by instant death shoot off. 6" target sounds pretty easy, but wind was usually between 10-20 mph and that darn balloon usually wasn't where it was when you broke the shot! scared Took me a while to realize not to shoot center of mass, aim for top of the stick! cool

Back then entry was $3 IIRC but that was ample to cover the cost of frozen turkeys with a healthy profit. Easy to calculate entry fee based on cost of turkeys.


Quick and clean and very popular in this area. Wish they still had them.

Regards,
hm

Sounds like fun. We had them back home when I was just a kid but I never shot in one.
