You will be better off with a scope, however, for the longest shots. I like a 1X or 1.5X model, with which I have shot turkeys standing, walking, running, and flying (once). Clark Bush prefers a 4X for both Still Target competition and hunting. “I can shoot with both eyes open, and I still have plenty of eye relief with a 4X,” he says. “Some people put 4X–12X variables on their Still Target guns, but the crosshairs bounce around at higher magnifications, and you lose eye relief, too. I’ve seen lots of people get scope cuts with these, and once I even saw a competitor who was knocked out by his scope.” That should be reason enough for you to keep it at 4X or under. That’s plenty of magnification for the longest-range gobbler, and if any lights are going to go out on your next hunt, better it be the bird’s.
