The Best Way to Pattern Your Shotgun for Turkey Season

By Midwest Whitetail • April 05, 2023

Next time you're ready to pattern your shotgun for turkey season, instead of setting up in a gun sled and dialing in the red dot, find yourself a tree, put your turkey vest on, get on the ground, and set up just like you would if you were calling that turkey in the timber!

This approach to patterning your shotgun can give you a better real-world feel and give you a chance to work through things that you're likely going to deal with, such as the way your turkey vest fits or positions you against the tree. Try it - we think you'll find it makes you feel even better prepared for the actual hunt!
