    Turkey Hunting Product Reviews

    Rocky Snake Boots

    Rocky has hit the turkey woods running with their snake boots.  These boots offer virtually everything the turkey hunter could ask for when chasing longbeards in the spring of the year.  They offer a couple different soul designs that offer a grip on all types of terrain, whether you’re climbing loose gravel ridges, muddy swamp bottoms, or grassy hills, they can handle it.  The soles hold on tight to the stuff you want and release the stuff you don't because of their self-cleaning design.  The 15" Cordura uppers are backed with Gor-Tex to keep you dry on the way to the roost, especially walking through tall grass or small creeks that were deeper than you thought.  All and all, these boots are lightweight, waterproof, comfortable and snakeproof, a must for the turkey hunter that doesn’t always tread lightly.

















    Carlson’s XX-Full Turkey Choke

    These choke tubes are designed to shoot ultra-tight pattern densities out of just about any shotgun with an interchangeable choke system.  With an extended parallel section to stabilize the shot before it leaves the gun, these tubes generate even, consistently tight patterns with super high core densities sure to ruin any gobblers day.  The Carlson’s line of turkey choke tubes offer both ported and non ported options.  The ported version offers an opportunity for the gasses to release over a longer area at the end of the barrel, therefore minimizing the muzzle jump and recoil that some of the those magnum turkey loads can deliver.  Carlson’s chokes are designed to fit most shotguns and are offered in different constrictions designed for optimum patterning of the size shot you want to shoot.  A must have when heading out after spring gobblers.










    TruGlo Gobble Stopper Red Dot

    It was a bad day to be a turkey when TruGlo introduced the Gobble Stopper red dot style scope.  This waterproof red dot scope is the ultimate way to top off the “ol’ faithful” turkey gun.  This scope has a rheostat controlled brightness that illuminates the 3-MOA dot that’s in the middle of a circle.  This circle is equal to a 24” circle at 30 yards.  This gives you an idea of how close a bird is by how much of the circle he fills up.  This scope also has infinite eye relief, which means it won’t black out on you if you’re not in the perfect position, and a field of view equal to your own peripheral vision.  What this means is that when you look through this scope with both eyes open it almost disappears and leaves a red dot in your vision.  No matter what position your head is in, if you can see the dot you can hit your target.  It’s also a great choice for people that where bifocals and have an issue with choosing which to keep in focus … the bird or the sights.  With a red dot style, it fools the eyes in to thinking they are in the same place.  This scope will make your hunts more relaxing by allowing you to focus on the bird and not on lining up your beads and making sure your head is down on the stock.  Just zero the scope like any other.  There is no more compensating if your gun shoots high, low, left or right.  Put the dot on his head and take your gobbler home. 






    Winchester Supreme HV Turkey Loads

    The Winchester Supreme HV turkey loads are a no-frills, hard hitting, great patterning load.  They don’t pack the punch to your wallet that some of the other “performance” loads do, but  produce amazing results on the range and in the field out to as far as I care to shoot.  Moving out at a blistering 1300 fps, these shells pack 1 ¾ oz.’s of shot into a 3” shell and 2 oz.’s into the 3.5” shell.  The loads are buffered for greater patterning performance, and the shot is copper plated so it holds its shape and hits hard.  From shell to shell and box to box, they maintain one thing that I need from a shell when I put it in my gun and head to the field, and that’s consistency.
