this SATURDAY!!!

i am using my .22cal pellet rifle to take a turkey. (i will have my shotgun with me if i lose my nerve - hey it could happen)
i sighted it in and i know where the pellets go from 10 to 20 yards. i am hoping to bring them in close since i dont know the killing power of this gun. i will go for the head shot for sure..and watching videos, it will be a PIA..a turkey rarely keeps his head still!! (hench the shotgun)./

with a bow, i just go for the body shot..at the wing attachement point.

my wife damn near took my head off when i said, "hmm maybe i should get a .25cal pellet gun?" i had no idea i said it out loud. :)

Good luck! We are building ahouse in the country and there's gophers everywhere, I just purchased a similar air rifle and have been impressed at it's capabilities. If you can hit your head shot there should be no problems with taking down a turkey.
