Just purchased my first set of decoys and slate call. I hunted turkey a few times as a kid in Western N.Y. but have never tried for any birds here in Texas. hopefully I can get out this spring and bag my first bird!

I will likely head up to LBJ grasslands and have a go at it. next thing to figure out is which overpriced ammo do I want to use in my +50 year old Remington Gas operated Semi-auto.

Longbeard XR by Winchester are getting some good reviews, and not overpriced.

Federal Premium #5s, 3 inch have been great for me.

I use these: http://www.federalpremium.com/products/details/shotshell.aspx?id=413

Their Flite-Contol wad seems to tighten patterns and its 2 ounce loads.

Winchester high brass #5 has worked very well in 12 and 20.
All my shots have been within 40 yards. Every bird has been DRT.
