I will be using my sbe 26 3.5 with hevi-shot, and wad wizard tube. along with a aimpoint comp m2 sight. Backing it up in case is my nova 24 inch with a carlsons hevi shot tube using 3.5 hevi shot and a aimpoint xd extreme sight! cant wait
I will be taking my dad's winchester single shot. I will be (hopefully) firing the last two federal premium shells that I bought 4 years ago. I like to keep it simple and inexpensive. So far so good. Good luck this year guys.
Remington 870 Express Magnum with TruGlo Fiber Optic sights.

Cabelas Seclusion 3D Camo clothing
Knight and Hale Lonesome Hen push-button call

Michigan-Sportsman.com Real Tree camo hat
Bark River Woodland knife
Benelli M1 Field- Forcing cones lengthened by Mag-Na-Port, also pro- ported and Hi-Vis interchangable bead installed. Using a Kick's turkey choke and Winchester High Velocity 5's. Three clients shot birds beyond 50yds this past year (I didn't tell them to shoot that early!) with this gun. I like it because it's lighter than the 3.5" guns.
Various slates (H.S. Battey Slate, Cody Slate, MAD PowerCrystal, etc.). I prefer the Knight and Hale "Four Aces" diaphram pack. Very raspy and lots of different sounds. Pockets are full of other calls I use from time to time. Also melted candy bars from hunts long past (some day I'll clean it out).
Confort is a big thing for me so I use a Bucklick Creek vest with a high-back seat built right in. I wore out my last one after three years of hunting and one of guideing.
BGH with 3" Federal #5s out of a Undertaker Tube.
Super Elite Vest in MO Breakup
Calls are as follows-
A-WAY Turkey Trooper 2000, excellent call
HS Black Magic Slate, also excellent and can get real loud
HS 360 Slate
HS lil deuce slate
K&H Lonesome hen
HS Field Champion "Natural" box call
HS lilstrut box call
HS Palmers Hoot Tube
K&H Crow call
Old Wooden Goose Call- resonant cavity
I like the Rosewood and Hickory strikers as well as the HS Magic Wand striker
I use the Black Magic to get them interested and then switch to the TT2000 for finishing. Although the Natural Box Call has also done well for me.
I absolutely cannot use diaphragm calls.
