Tom taken near Gotebo, OK

Worked hard for this little fella. Saw him and a couple of others come off the hill from my set up with the wind blowing to me. I had to circle them and get where the wind would carry my calls.
They came in to the other side of the pond where I was set up under some trees.
I worked them and watched them for 2 hours until they started to get nervous when cows moved in. I decided it was now or never. I judged the distance about 70 yds. I had practiced shooting 50 and 60 yds with my new Primos Undertaker .650 choke. I held the bead on his head and fired. At the shot, he dropped in his tracks and flopped a couple of times. My hunting partner couldn't believe I hit him.
19lb, 5" beard with no spurs. Remington 870 Rem Mag Express with Winchester Extreme 3" , #6 shot.
