    In some states it's illegal to hunt turkeys with a 410. I'm not sure about waterfowl but for sure there's just not enough thump there for big birds.

          Winchester brought out a 410 duck load last year as far as turkey loads go I dont know. If you want the duck loads check Cabelas or Macks Prairie Wings

            i doubt it. if they did make a turkey load, it would have an inconsistent pattern. i would recommend a 20 gauge if he's a little guy. 12 gauge if hes bigger.

              A .410 with 3in 4 shot will take a turkey down. Keep all shots within 20 yards. If you have a 20 or 12 I would recommnend using them and leave the .410 at home.

                Try to club up, both for turkeys or ducks. .410 far from ideal for either. Doves on the other hand...it's ideal.

                  The .410 is commonly used as a beginner gun which is ironic, because with the small shot charge it carries, even experienced shooters find it to be a challenge to shoot. An inexperienced shooter shooting such a difficult gauge will miss and wound a lot of animals. I would not hunt anything larger than rabbits with a .410. For fast flying birds like doves, an experienced shooter with a .410 will be lucky to get 2 or 3 doves for every box of shells fired.

                    probably not but in some states it is legal to put down a turkey with a .410 though.
