My 78 year old mom in law got her a nice tom this morning. 22lb, 3/4inch spurs and 8 1/2 beard. She shot it with a youth model savage 301 full choke 20ga that I bought her for mothers day last year. I loaded her a 1oz 2 3/4inch nickle plated #6 with blue dot that patterns really well. She shot this bird at about 32 yards. She still does all her own calling with a box call.
