Patterning Your Turkey Shotgun

Patterning Your Turkey Shotgun

Ohio Huntsman  / 

Posted on April 27, 2021

Show Notes

This week on the show we discuss how to pattern a shotgun. Anyone who has ever looked online for tips on patterning a shotgun knows there is varying information depending on where you look. We mainly focused on patterning for turkey season specifically but the same general concepts apply to all shotguns and choke/shell combinations. We discussed what size shot we typically use for turkey hunting and also what the positives and negatives are for each size. We also discussed what distances we typically pattern our guns out to and what our reasoning is for limiting ourselves to those distances. We then discuss what we use for targets and also how many BBs we like to see in the "kill zone" to feel comfortable at a given distance.
