I have a benelli and my best load has been Win Supreme 5's in 3-1/2". I have a hs strut extra full turkey choke. Awesome pattern on this choke and load combination. When I patterned my gun I only had this choke but I bought 4,5,and 6 shot in federal and winchester and I got the best from win 5's. Good luck and remember that no 2 guns shoot or pattern the same find the one the works best for your gun.

Good Luck turkey hunting!!!

I bought the HS strut and a box of Rem and Win Supremes in #5 I will pattern and go from there. Thanks for your insight.

Complete and loud DITTO on the Winchester Supremes #5 in 3 1/2 inch for an Xtra Full Benelli!

I have the actual Benelli extra full choke and have run many different loads through it. Every brand and length of shell in all three shot sizes. Haven't found another round that can touch that set up.

I've been taking birds with that for 7-8 years from 12 feet to 50 yards. And occasional high strung roosters grin.gif! I couldn't be more confident. But do try others just in case!

My gun ended up liking the Win Supreme 2oz Lead 3 1/2" loads the best. A real great pattern out to 50 yards. Thanks for the advice.

      Has anyone tried out the polar bird hub houses? The floor looks like a neat concept I wonder how well it works. Looking for a small 2 man hub so I don't have to drag my huge heavy 6 man thermal hub when I go alone.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.

      I did that with tango and saw a world of difference ... I started at Sand Pines and they helped me tons. The kid brought me out kept all the pheasants caged and would plant one at a time in a easy spot where I could see where he planted. I would let tango out we would flush it shoot retrieve come back I would put him in the car and we did that 3 times. After that he then planted the rest of the ones I bought and we found all but one. Next spot I brought him was Golden Meadows and they were helpful as well I had them flag the general area the pheasants were planted. I went there a couple times and each time they used less flags and planted the birds farther away from the flags they did have out. Until the last time I went used no flags at all.

      As if there was any question...definitely be careful on those high current lakes.  I went through (walking) on Koetter tonight. Thankfully I only plunged one leg in to the hip and was able to scramble away.   Its a spot I have been a dozen times in the past few years.  I knew the ice got thinner in this area but was always passable and I followed a 4 wheeler or tank track and then a foot/sled path so I thought I would stay dry.  I was ON the path when I got wet.  Had picks around my neck and glad I did even if I didn't use them (happened SO fast).  The walk back to the car was more than a little nerve wracking.  Not sure I'll ever fish that spot again.  And in the future I wont be so trusting of other's tracks.  Spud on...   tg
