Nice! Was he wearing the hat when you shot him? [:D]

I know it seems like a long shot for a 20ga but the gun has been tweeked a little by my gunsmith plus its' been extensively patterned at 37 measured yards.  I used to shoot H-13 but swicthed this season to Federal HW flitecontrol.  I will eventually be testing the new Federal HW Flitecontrol #7's.  Still, 40 is the outer limit for this gun.
The hat was an after thought to distinguish it from all the other posted gobblers.

Congratulations!!  Nice bird!!
 
Interesting to hear about the effectiveness of those Federal shells.  I have been considering switching over to those Federal 6's or 7's. 
 
Your results seem to justify their performance!!
