Default Getting closer !!!

About time to pull out the decoys n knock the dust off. I need to sight my gun in, I changed out my scope to a different style dot scope. Now can change the dot from red to green (depending on lighting)

I live and hunt in Western New York, we have a huge turkey population where I am, but our season begins May 1st for birds, I do spend much time scouting, filming, and shed hunting though.

well i posted a few ago about swapping my scope out well today i pulled it out and sighted it in and took a few pics of the new an old scope. love the style much better on this one and easier to center dot on short timely shots. took off the BSA red dot and added the LEAPERS red dot, now i think i will keep the BSA for when i get the boy a better youth like the rem youth pump, camo, turkey in a 20 ga

Well the BSA scope was on for 4 years and been in and out of the woods, put few boxes of 3 1/2 hv loads, and many of turkey in the freezer and never had any issues with the scope mount or scope. I only changed because the BSA has a reddish glair that turkey have busted me a few times if the sun was in their favor.

Yes it will but you must try for a broad Side shot so not only will you hit vitals you'll also pin the wings down to help prevent flight. Or you can buy gillatin broad heads that will give you a 6" leeway for neck shots but you would have to use arrows long enough that the broad heads stay out in front of your bow.
