Sorry to be cynical, but I can't think of anything easier than shooting a bird on the ground with a shotgun. The actual shooting is the easiest part of turkey hunting. And, you are shooting it like a rifle, so fit and handling are far from critical. I have turkey hunted, but it just wasn't my cup of tea. A new good semi choice will be limited by your budget, but just about any of the major brand pump guns have a model that will do it for far under your budget.
What could have happened... did.
