Anyone seen the advertisment for the new Knight shotgun? Can't recall what it's called but man what a patern they showed it shoot. Never seen anything with a pattern that tight. Looked like it would plumb take a gobbler's head clean off. Definetly going to have to check one out. Always did want a muzzle loader shotgun and the new Knight just might be the excuse I've been needing to get one. ;) Think it would be very cool to take a turkey with one. :yes: PA and Cayugad, what say you? I very much value the two of you old geezers advice. :yes:

Ok, I just checked out the Knight web site. It's the TK 2000. It comes with or without a thumbhole stock. The impressive part is they claim 85% shot density in a 30" circle at 40 yards. :blink: The price is $451.45 . Guess I'll have to start saving my change .;) :lol:

My smoothbore is good to 30 yards and that is the max range. I'd rather have the turkey at 25 yards to be sure.

I have wanted a Knight TK2000 for a long time. Since hinting does not work in this case, I just have to buy one. Every once in a while you can find them on line very reasonable.

Another good shotgun is the Thompson Center System 1 they will do a real good job as well. What I really would like to find is the 12 gauge barrel for a New Englander and then mount that on a Black Mountain Magnum.. that would be the coolest shotgun I think.

Thanks Cayugad. Think what I'll probably do, since moneys an issue, is keep an eye out for a 12 ga. black powder barrel, on ebay, for my T/C Encore. I'd be interested in knowing if anybody has one and how well they pattern. Gee Cayugad, I think me and you and PA could sure have some interesting conversations around a camp fire. ;) :lol:

Although I hunted turkeys off and on for a bunch of years all in the fall but never real serious. When Eric got old enough though we started doing this turkey thing a bit more serious. Then PA finally a few years ago started a spring season. Man we caught on fire for the spring hunt. Since we have been only hunting spring gobblers for about 5 years we are sort of new to it. We have been much more successful than when we first started this thing.

I have not yet felt the urge for a muzzleloader shotgun. I have been reading some posts about the TK 2000 and the people that have them seem to be real pleased. A shotgun is about the least used gun I own, and I own a whole corral of them. I have single shots, double barrels, slide actions, a bolt action, and semi autos. Some of these shotguns are collector items so will never be shot and one is a 10 ga that ought to roll your eyeballs.

I agree a threesome of us around a campfire would be quite interesting. At least the fire would not have to smoke we could make our own. Lol. Hey It could happen it only takes determination.
