Sure Shot

The Keefer Brothers, Paul Sawyer, Nikki Boxler and Taylor Drury partake in a friendly competition to determine who has a sure shot. Locked and loaded with Winchester Long beard XR ammunition, the crew dials in on the Winchester Long Beard XR Pattern Board.

With the Winchester Pattern Board™ application, users can select the gauge, choke construction, shell length, pellet size, brands and distance to replicate their shotgun pattern.

Engineers shot over 2,600 patterns from 10 to 70 yards to provide accurate information for the Winchester Pattern Board™ application.

Sure Shot

Before spending a day tackling wild turkeys together, the Winchester Life crew practices their aim with a friendly competition. The team takes turns aiming at the Winchester Long Beard XR pattern board. A morning of spirited competition brings connection and community, and adds new memories to the Michigan hunt.

Spring unlocks a closed window that anxious outdoorsmen have waited all winter to unhinge: Open wild turkey season.

 

Before hunters can bring their lips to the mouth of a turkey call, it is important to make sure the firearms they bear are patterned properly. Solidifying a shotgun pattern improves accuracy and provides a complete picture of how the shot will land.

 

So when the feathers fan, the feathers will fall soon after.

 

Winchester offers an innovative application to help hunters perfect their shot. With the Winchester Pattern Board™ users can select the gauge, choke constriction, shell length, pellet size, brands and distance to replicate their shotgun pattern.

 

The Winchester Pattern Board™app is the first of its kind…and its information is not based on assumption. Engineers shot over 2,600 patterns from 10 to 70 yards to provide accurate intel for the application.

 

Creating a pattern with the Winchester Pattern Board™app eliminates the guessing. It saves time. Energy. Money. A true gobbler game changer.
