Turkey Hunting with a Rifle

Interested in turkey hunting with a rifle? Read on to learn about what it takes to succeed.

Legality / Safety

The two biggest concerns of turkey hunting with a rifle are whether or not it is legal and whether or not it can be done safely. As of this writing, about 10 states allow some form of rifle hunting for turkey, but laws change each year. After making certain it is legal, a hunter should consider his or her hunting area. To be safe, a rifle hunter needs a secure backstop when making a shot. Hunting and shooting from an elevated location such as a hilltop is ideal, but not always practical. If a person's hunting area provides only flat land and thick brush, he or she should leave the rifle at home and hunt with a shotgun or bow.

Anatomy

A hunter who is going to take a rifle out turkey hunting needs to spend some time learning about turkey anatomy. A hunter who uses a rifle should aim at the base of the neck when this shot is presented. However, a hunter should be familiar with the location of the heart, lungs and the breast meat of the turkey in order to make a humane shot while not ruining too much meat. Most state wildlife agencies will provide diagrams showing the location of the vital organs of turkeys (and other game animals).

Cartridge Selection

Some hunters choose to pursue their birds with a .22LR and shoot them in the head. If you have the skill and patience, that is fine but it is certainly a challenge. For most hunters who will be shooting into the body, a .22 Magnum probably makes a good minimum cartridge. While a .22LR can certainly push through some feathers and bones, it would be a strictly short range proposition. The .22 Hornet and .218 Bee may be the ideal choices, though deer sized cartridges will work as well. As a turkey's body is not very big, high speed bullets properly placed from .270's and other deer guns will not expand quickly enough to destroy much meat. And with a rifle, there is no shot to pick out the meat.

Turkey Decoys

For hunter's who are using a rifle, a turkey decoy or two placed into an opening can be all the attraction needed to kill a turkey. Though calling is of course still helpful, a hunter can place the decoy in an obvious location, back away and wait for a gobbler to spot the decoy. A combination hen and jake decoy may be the best option.
