    Sorry no pictures of the set up. I forgot my phone in the truck. Hunted a 8 acre safflower patch in the middle of vineyards along a creek... Thousands of birds. I put my dad in a good position and he had his 15 in about 40 minutes with a little over a box of shells. I took a spot that I knew wouldn’t see nearly the flight as the rest of the field, but I like taking my time and enjoying it. Took me until 7:20 to get my 15 (shoot time was 6:05). Tough shots where I was sitting. Mostly 40+ yard crossing shots. Exactly 3 shells/bird for me. A lot of miss, tail feathers, then fold shots for me today.

    Who's room Jeff? It's awesome!!!
    Our dove spot an almonds orchard with a canal running through it stunk it up pretty bad. I killed more beers than dove I only got 1 mourning dove and 5 of the Ur'asin's. It was fun getting out with the boys again and had a great prawn dinner that my cousin's wife cooked up for us while we were hunting. I was pretty bummed because it seemed like my little pop gun was finding it's mark pretty easily today. I might have to start using it more during duck and goose season again.
    Even though the spot was pretty much a bust it was fun getting out for the afternoon.
    Life is good!:yes:tu

    The average, based on my own anecdotal evidence, is around 2 birds per box.

    If I could only kill 2 dove out of a box of shells I think I'd shoot myself.... but I guess I'd probably miss then too.
