Spring is really turkey time.  but I'll be hunting them this fall, and can use a rifle.  thinking a 22 LR with 40 grain solid.

what would you recommend???

Can't use a rifle for winged game here. I agree with that.

We can shoot turkeys out of the trees too.
We shoot mountain grouse with long and short arms also.

.22 Magnum is legal here. I think that would be a good choice.
