black powder 4 longbeards?

3 posts in this topic

have any of you guys used a muzzel loading shot gun for turkeys and if so what do you think is the best powder and shot size. think I'm going to give it a whirl with the old smokepole this year and I'm going to be using a knight black powder shotgun with 3 or31/2 in wads.

I've always wanted to and with some of the new muzzleloader shotguns out there you don't need to sacrifice killing range to use them.

Good Luck!

I got into smoke burning turkey hunting last year because it was the only way to get a lic, was talked into buying a white tominator from a guy that was sittng on a little rock in a big ocean and he told me it would shoot as good if not better than my modern gun and he was right!! Used it to kill 3 toms in 3 states and it will outperform my SBE with a turkey choke and the best loads I can find for it, hard to believe intill you pattern these guns its pretty impressivewhen a little black powder and some copper-plated 5's will beat the modern loads.

      Who wants to fish in the dark, best thing about Vermilion is the ability to catch walleyes during bankers hours.  I would recommend looking into one of the private rentals on the lake (VRBO, etc.), most will have a private dock and offer more privacy.

      Hey Bob,   We are coming up this weekend, fishing for the entire day on Saturday the 21st.  Osakis has been on my radar as have a few of the chain lakes, however with it being so long since I have fished in the area, I just wanted to see if there were any other suggestions for a decent multi-species lake or at least one with a chance for having a respectable crappie - walleye combo.   We also have been looking into Mary, Ida, Irene and Oscar.
