Buying a nova - camo or not??

Recommended Posts

I have never hunted turkey, this is my first year. I have decided on a nova, but from your vast experiences, is the camo paint required, or will the black synthetic work? Also, there will be no additional funds to buy an additional "turkey choke" so i plan on using the standard "full" with a 3" #6. Your thoughts are appreciated.

My personal opinion lack of movement is the best camo. My son has a black youth Nova 20 guage and has dropped turkeys every year under 40yds. I would invest in a choke and use Hevi 13 #7's.....but again not required to tag a Turkey. If your not ready to purchase, maybe a friend has a Turkey gun you can try before dropping the dough. The knowledge, calling, patience and being still are far more important than a brand or type of camo pattern.

If you struggle to call them in close, and have to risk moving and spooking them, you could dress any suitable gun with camo wrap.

Pattern your new gun before you hunt with it. 3" 6s may shoot completely different in your new Nova than they did in your old shotgun. I agree with the others about movement v. color although my Nova (event gun) is camo.

Engaged in hunting for more than 10 years. Should I buy camouflage? I think it's worth it, depending on what budget you have. To begin with, I think you need to ask permission from your wife. Last year he himself hunted, though a wild boar. My hunt ended at a local casino casinomaxi.co.nz. The wife still remembers. I then earned myself 2 camouflages. It was the second birthday.
