My Remington 870, covered in camo duct tape, and ACTIVE #4 copper. They quit making the Active shells years ago, and I am down to my last 3. I also carry a jake & hen decoy for field setups..

I need some new mouth calls.. I have an old slate call made by Knight&Hale.. I have one of those small primos box calls..

Mossberg 835 Ulti Mag 3 1/2
Kick's Gobblin' Thunder .680 constriction
I use to use the winchester 3 1/2 in super supreme shells...the old red one but i guess they don't make them anymore and i have only three left so i got some Winchester 3 1/2 Long Beard XR's to see how they pattern.
I always carry few decoys with me but hardly ever use one.
Calls....i usually have several mouth calls as well as a couple of slate calls and a couple of glass calls..i very seldon use a box call but will have one on me. I also have a ole wingbone call that is over 40 years old and was given to me by the person that got me started in turkey hunting but i have never been able to use it, i just always have it with me.

I hunted them for 4 years only using my bow Bigsteve without a ground blind and my heart just couldn't take it... I would get the shakes so bad I couldn't pull my bow back so I went back to shotgunning them

i have taken several gobblers with my bow in the fall season but have never hunted them in the spring with a bow looking forward to the challenge i'm going to use a ground blind made out of military camo like people would use on a duck blind i do not like the closed ground blinds i like to be able to see 360 .

Mossberg 835,TruGlo sights and Undertaker choke tube! I use slate/glass type call to get them close and a diaphragm call to seal the deal. I seldom use a decoy unless I'm hunting a field.I use crow call or box call to locate usually but one of my favorite way to locate turkeys is thunder! If your lucky enough or crazy enough to be turkey hunting in a spring thunderstorm a Tom will give up his location after a loud clap of thunder!

Browning Citori. 3 1/2" #7s Nitros. Regular factory modified on top and Kicks on bottom. I switched last year halfway thru season and really liked it especially when they get to close and I can just switch to the top barrell.

Remington 870 and still using the factory choke at the moment. It works pretty good with Winchester ammo.
