Encore 12-Gauge Turkey Gun

It’s no surprise to dedicated gobbler gunners that turkeys have become the number two game animal in North America, ranking just behind whitetail deer in hunter popularity. Spring hunting is behind us, but fall turkey season is fast approaching. If you don’t yet have a specialized shotgun designed specifically for the turkey woods, Thomp­son/Center will be happy to help you out with its new Encore turkey gun combo.

Based on T/C’s versatile Encore rifle action, the new 12-gauge turkey gun sports the popular Realtree Hardwoods HD finish, along with a 12-gauge shotgun barrel fitted with a ported screw-in turkey choke tube. This special choke is said to increase pattern density by 25 percent. The same smoothbore barrel can be used to shoot rifled slugs by simply attaching an accessory rifled choke tube.

The 24-inch shotgun barrel comes with fiber optic sights already installed. This barrel is decked out in Realtree Hardwoods camo, and a plain blued version is also available. The Encore turkey gun measures 40 inches from muzzle to butt and weighs just a hair over 6 pounds for easy carrying.

Want to hunt with a muzzleloader? Just switch to the 12-gauge muzzleloading turkey barrel, which also comes in Realtree Hardwoods HD camo (the protruding turkey choke tube is blued steel).

Or if, like me, you already have an Encore rifle in your safe, you can simply buy the turkey shotgun   barrel and forend. The new camo barrel and forend may not match your existing walnut or black synthetic buttstock, but I’m betting the gobblers won’t care.
