Thats a hell of a shot


it is, but can be done if you have the right equipment

I don't like shooting that far because I like watching them put on a show too much, but I know some guys that take patterning very serious and can get some amazing groups even farther than that.

Dont turkey hunt do you?


I sure do. Not sure why you would ask such a question either. I can even tell you that they are much easier to get when they are up in the trees vs on the ground.

need a scope for a shotgun for a 20-30 yard shot?


In short no, the turkey scopes really pay off for very close shots (10 yards or less) and long shots (40+ yards and questionable ethically)...
