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.
Now it’s on to lunch at the trophy room...
WHAT!? No Elephants or Cape Buffalo?
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!
The average, based on my own anecdotal evidence, is around 2 birds per box.
Or whooping cranes....
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.
