    if ur talkin shot placment, try and avoid body shots...turkey vitals are well protected...and even a 40 yrd 12ga shot may not be enough...you want a head or kneck shot...catch him on his strut and he will extend his neck...if the bird is standing still or not strutting as he walks, give a shout or cluck w/ the box and he'll usually lift up his head...but make sure you have a bead on him...once he looks ur direction at 40 or closer, he's gone...

    if that was a field dressing question, here's a link for ya
