My uncle had a 12ga bolt action goose gun with a 36" full choke barrel, and he just loved turkey shoots!
I tried turkey hunting with it one time when I was a kid. I was laying on one side of a log and a gobbler slipped in and walked up on the other side of the log. The barrel was so long that it stuck out past his head, and I couldn't get it back far enough to get his head on the right side of the barrel. I started to just hit the bird with it but then figured I would just let it take a few more steps and I'd just take it's head off, but somehow the bird figured out something was up and took off before I could get a shot off. I hadn't thought about that in years.
And my daddy had single shot with a 36" full choke barrel, but there wasn't a turkey shoot in the world worth the punishment you got from pulling that trigger!
