I don't see alot of deer or turkey hunters using doubles anymore. But, most of my hunting is done in the woods up a tree stand. I like the double, because I usually keep my #1's in the gun(for deer). If I see turkeys coming my way, I can quietly ease the double open, and insert the 4's or 6's and "change up" without spooking the turkey's. I don't like to shoot turkeys with buckshot, because it sometimes shoots through them and they fly off before dying. Anyway, you can't change shells in an auto or pump without making some noise.
