Shotgun for turkey shoots
 
I am looking for recommendations for a shotgun for turkey shoots. The kind where you get closest to the x and win. Barrel length, choke size etc.

The longest barrel you can find, and the tightest choke you can find. A lot of guys run a 32-34" barrel and an extra-full choke. Some shoots limit barrel length though, so watch for that. Also pattern your gun...a different choke might shoot better than the one you expect to shoot the tightest.

Browning A-Bolt, if you can find one https://www.browning.com/products/fi...ns/a-bolt.html

You can find custom chokes on ebay. Your wallet is the limit on these things it seems.

I went to a . 680 shoot which seems like it would be even due to the looser chokes but the same 5 or so guns kept winning so it's more than just luck.

Down here in St. Marys you can bring whatever you like, but if another shooter wants to use your gun you have to let him. Levels things out a bit.

At the Deale Charter Boat Captain’s Turkey shoots it must be a 12 gauge, the barrel cannot be longer than 30” and a 20 gauge shell is used as a choke go/no go gauge. We issue the shells round by round.

We have wrapped it up for the year.
We will start them up again for 4 weeks beginning next April.

The Legion Turkey shoots rules are a commercially available choke. I use a card choke .650 on a 28” barrel.
A lot of luck involved… fun though
