The .410 is the little turkey gun that could

Not all that long ago any “real” turkey hunter would have discredited the idea of using a .410 to hunt turkeys. Turkey hunters endured a period where it felt like if you were not shooting the biggest, baddest, and heaviest, 3 1⁄2-inch, 12 gauge load, you simply were not going to be able to kill that weary old gobbler.
They were unforgiving, shoulder-punishing monsters — the max dram equivalent of pushing 2-plus ounces of copper-plated lead shot, brought on brutal, bruise-inducing recoil. Over the last few years there have been some monumental changes in turkey load technology.

An Adirondack ice fishing sampler: Here are some lakes to target

As we roll into the winter season many chilly adventures can be had in the Adirondacks. One of the most popular being ice fishing.
There are over 3,000 lakes and ponds contained within the blue line of the Adirondack Park; obviously not all of them are open to ice fishing. Choosing a random lake on a whim seems like a daunting task to undertake if you are unfamiliar with the Adirondacks. From lake trout and landlocked Atlantic salmon, to walleyes, perch and panfish, there is an Adirondack lake to appeal to every angler’s preferred species and skill set.

New York teen bags big Missouri tom with seven beards

A Saratoga County teen has shaken up the turkey-hunting world this spring after bagging a seven-bearded tom while on a hunting trip with family and friends in Missouri. 

Joey Berlin, of Clifton Park, had no idea what would be in store for he and his dad, Tim, while hunting the family’s leased property in the Midwest. But he would come out of the hunt with a gobbler that weighed 20 pounds, 10 ounces, had 1-inch spurs, and a total length of the beards that measured 53 3/16 inches.
