A strutting turkey head on is a slightly different case. Then there is less neck to shoot at, since from that angle it’s folded back on itself. And, there’s a possibility of blasting the fan. I did once shoot a Rio Grande gobbler in full strut as it came at me. There were two birds coming side by side together, and I wanted to make sure I didn’t kill a second birds with a stray pellet, so I let then come close and shot at about 20 yards where I knew the pattern would be small. Because that pattern was the size of a grapefruit, it all hit the head, and I don’t remember much in the way of meat or fan damage with that bird. That day I was shooting a Benelli with a turkey choke and Federal’s old 3-inch premium load of 5s, which was the bees knees back in 2000 or so.
