Hello,
I was hoping to get some help? here is my problem. I have a mosseberg 935 and i have been having problems with the patterns with the stock turkey choke tube. i missed 2 birds last year that i know i would have gotten with the old winchester. But i really like the 935 and was hoping someone could tell me about the jellyhead and what size shot they have had best results with? Right know i shot number 4s 2oz 3inch mag in federal. Thanks for any info!!!!!!!!!!

If you want the very best...

http://www.nitrocompany.com/

Most guys on here are going to tell you Nitro's are the best. However, you will get everything from Winchester #4, Remington #5, HeviShot #6, and every other combination of brands and shot size.

There are alot of threads already covering this exact topic in the Turkey Hunting Forum. Check those out.

If you don't want to spend the $$$ on the Nitro's then the HeviShot or Winchester Xtended Range will work nicely.

In the end, you will have to figure out what load fits your gun / choke combo the best and what you are willing to spend.

One last thought...how far do you want to shoot. I always find it funny that alot of guys shoot the best chokes and the best load to get the ulitmate pattern, and then they say that ethically they won't shoot at a turkey farther than 40 yds. If you are only going to shoot 35 - 45 yds max anyway, then just grab any turkey load and it should do fine with your JellyHead.

40 yards is the max you need to be shooting at turkeys period, if you cant get him that close just come back and fool with him tommorrow. Any regular lead loads, like Winchester 4s, 5s, 6s, and Federal, and remington hane been killing turkey for years, so why do you need hevi shot, or extented range, or even Nitros when I can get at least 2 boxes of shells for what one box of that stuff cost, and tell the turkeys I kill they didnot get killed with hevi shot or nitros or any of that stuff.

When your in the turkey woods from sun rise to sun set, wear out a pair of boots, and 4 cushions every time you go you know you gave it all you had.

40 yards that is it? I like to get turkeys in close as well, but with the guns and shells you can get today 40 yards is just the start. Last year I killed a turkey at 56 yards and another at 65 yards with my Jelly Head Choke and #6 Winchester Xtended range. My brother shot one at 70 yards with the same shells. All three were grave yard dead. I agree that getting turkeys close is the goal of every hunter, but most people only have so many days to hunt and only being able to shoot 40 yards would have cost me two turkeys last year.
With that said I pattern my shot gun at 40, 50, and 60 yards. I take alot of time and spend alot of money so I can shoot turkeys this far. If you don't pattern your gun you shouldn't shoot a turkey at 20 yards, but with the shells and chokes today, don't cut yourself short.

This was exactly my point when I asked "WHY" in my previous post.

I agree...40yds is no longer the max.

I don't care how far your gun and expensive ammo can shoot, ethically 40 yards is the furtherst you should be attempting to shoot a turkey. If you can't get one closer than that then you need to stay home a work more on your calling and hunting methods because seventy yards you should be shooting a slug. Most hunters I know can kill turkeys with bird shot because they practice calling and have the patience to bring the turkey in. You will wound one some day.

I wont shoot at a turkey past 40 yrds. My set up could take one farther but I just dont think its ethical. ANyways about the jelly head. I love mine. I have had great succes with Whinchester X-tended 6s.

I'm gonna agree with Dust on this one. I think all the new technology has a starngle hold on turkey hunting. Who has any fun shooting a bird at 70 yards? I think future generations of turkey hunters will lose the fine art of working a gobbler into close range because the chokes, guns and loads of today are making turkey shooting and not turkey hunting.
