Whether you are a beginner to the art of turkey hunting or you have a pile of beards and fans stacked up in your garage, these exciting new shotguns introduced at the 2020 SHOT Show will knock down any turkey in your path.
1. Remington V3 Field Sport Mossy Oak Obsession NWTF The V3 has been a best-seller since its release in 2016. Since then, the company has expanded the line to include a number of different models. The V3 Field Sport Mossy Oak Obsession NWTF is one of the new models introduced this year. I’ve personally never experienced a shotgun as durable and reliable as the V3. Covered in NWTF Mossy Oak Obsession camouflage and built around the same VersaPort gas system the V3 is known for, it’s guaranteed to perform in the turkey woods. MSRP: $1,024.85; remington.com.
2. TriStar Hunter Mag Camo 3.5ʺ While not typically considered a “turkey” gun by many, over/unders can be great for turkey hunting—there are two barrels, therefore you can have two different chokes installed to be sure you always hit your target. The new TriStar Hunter Mag has a Cerakoted receiver in burnt bronze and is covered in Mossy Oak Bottomland camo. Chambered in 3½-inch, this shotgun can handle any magnum load you throw in it. MSRP: $760; tristararms.com.
3. Browning Gold-10 Gauge Field Browning is giving new life to the 10-gauge with the introduction of the Gold 10 Gauge Field. This addition to the Browning line is covered in Mossy Oak Break-Up Country camo, and has a silver front bead sight. Featuring a 26-inch barrel, the Gold 10 Gauge Field comes standard with three choke tubes and is chambered in 3½-inch. It also comes with the company’s Invector choke tube system. The composite stock is comfortable to shoulder and the recoil pad feels really nice. This is one shotgun I would love to hit the turkey woods with. MSRP: $1,799.99; browning.com.
4. CZ-USA CZ Reaper Magnum AP The CZ Reaper Magnum AP’s shorter 26-inch barrels make it easier to maneuver in the woods or a blind, while the extended choke tubes allow you to know exactly which choke is in which barrel without guess work. The included Picatinny rail is removeable and makes it easy to mount an optic. There are QD swivels to add a sling, adding to the ease of racing through the woods. It comes with 5 chokes, including an Extra Full. Between the 3½-inch chambers, the included choke tubes, sling options and the ease of mounting an optic, this over/under will become a stable of the turkey hunting community in no time. MSRP: $993; cz-usa.com.
