Just curious - when you guys pull your shotgun up on a tom, do you pull it when you first spot it or do you wait until the split moment right before you pull the trigger?

Hopefully, its already up and pointed were I'll think he'll be stepping into view by the time I see that big ol' white head bobbing through the woods

Up and ready.
If anything, when I am using a box call, I may have to slide my right hand in position should I need to coax him a little closer with some purrs. Not easy to call with one hand but can be done. I guess thats when a diaphram would come in handy :lol:

That's a losers bet.:coolgleam

Stack the odds in your favor- you want his head and neck stuck straight up looking for ya. Oftimes a simple "cluck" will do the job.

you should have your gun up and ready before the tom is even spotted. they have such a good sense of sight that they can catch any movement. it's better to be ready than to have to make a last second move that screws you over.
