Was surprised, I didn't get drawn for my either of my two choices (A or B) for zone 1. Ended up getting a leftover tag for period c.

Benuts,  i'd run lead.  I wouldn't use the same goose shells.  I like 4/6 combo.  there is a ton of shells on the market today,  but when i hunted with a gun.  I ran Federal or Rem Nitro turkey. fairly cheap,  4/6 combo.

Another thing if you have the money,  buy a couple brands,  shoot the gun with both.  some shells pattern better than others depending on the gun.  your goose gun is fine.  My kids shot turkey with a 410 and a 20 gauge when they were first starting out.  

Not gospel,  but i would recommend it.

Any time period is good but drawing a permit for Zone 2 early is impressive. The Zone covers 2/3 of the population and most people perceive it impossible to get a bird after the 2nd week.

Zone 2, period B.  Is that good?  Ive never gone before. 

I figure if I can shoot geese on the ground I should be able to use same load & gun on a turkey?

I'm out there when the sun comes up,  but if those birds don't come down right on me or near me and walk by....it's bye bye on those birds until later in the day when they are either fed up or done breeding those hens they roosted with.  I know many that set up on them,  as do  I sort of.  it's all big mature oaks so they can be anywhere.  30 years ago I used to "Put them to bed",  but now i just hunt and don't chase my tail.  It doesn't mean as much to me as it did when I was younger.  I set out  two blinds in good travel spots and spots they like to show off...and I sit.  They'll be there at some point.  Only years i've been blanked is super high wind weekends and or rain.  I'll hunt a day,  If one doesn't come through, i'm done if that weather isn't supposed to break.  I'll go shed hunting or something more productive.  Turkey hunting is fun,  but I'm a deer hunter, it's just another thing to kill with the bow prior to bow season.  I enjoy turkey season,  but I don't kill myself to kill a bird....it happens it happens.  Killing them with the bow is a rough time anyway,  you can have one at 20 yards and never have a good shot.  So I expect to go out and not get one,  but just hearing the birds gobble is worth the price of admission
