    I'm looking to camo a shotgun for turkey seasons.
    Is there a good camo pattern that would work for both seasons?

    May I ask why?
    (not to try and shoot down the idea :p)

    Turkeys are good at seeing movement, but color doesn't matter otherwise.

    it is an old bolt action shotgun that needs to be refinished. It has hardly any value so I thought I would make it into something useful.

    Ah okay, didn't know if you were wanting to paint a newer shotgun, or something collectible :p

    PG,

    Turkeys see very well. They see red, whites, and blue the best. I had turkeys bolt because I took off a glove to scratch and one pegged me and ran. Thats my opinion but I do know they see very well. I wrap my shotguns that are not camo and to me they are one of the hardest animals to hunt other than coyotes.

    I've never had any problem running regular guns, blinds usually work the best for me since they are so motion sensitive.
