No group of hunters is as fanatical about their sport as turkey hunters. Who can blame us? The sound of a gobble sends chills up our spines and the sight of a tom strutting into range is as thrilling as winning the lottery. We are a demanding bunch, too. We want specialized equipment designed just for the spring gobbler woods.
We also insist on a gun made just for turkey hunting, one with specialized features that have no use in the duck marsh or the pheasant fields. Thankfully, gun makers are turkey hunters, too. They’ve listened to our demands and given us a host of first-rate turkey guns to choose from. Here’s a look at 10 of the best turkey shotguns for 2014.
