Most ducks from one flock

Postby KAhunter » Mon Oct 31, 2005 3:18 pm

just wanted to see how many ducks you and your hunting buddies have ever gotten out of a flock.. my personal best was when 16 teal out of a group, it was one of those days where we were killing ducks all day....4 of us in the blind, each got another shell in and smoked the 4th.. one of those shots that everything comes together perfect, no one shoots the same bird, and we all hit our shots... the planets must have been aligned right or something ... anyways post any good stories u have

I know I've personally shot 4 teal with one shot of 3.5" 4's. I doubt I'll ever do that again.

Hunting in a group we've dropped 9 birds with 3 shooters.

my hunting buddy shot three teal with one shot. i have shot three geese with one shot (i snuck up on about two hundred of them and got within 15 yards.) i think our best is like 5 or 6. i usually only hunt with one or two other people.
it's great watching them fall from the sky.

My personal best out of 1 flock was years ago when my father in law and I were out on a willow point when a swarm of gadwalls came into the decoys. 5 fell on my first shot and I got 1 on each of my 2nd and 3rd shots. If I remember corrrectly my father in law downed 2 off his end of the boat. We ended up with 18 gadwalls that day. That was back during the days when gaddies, teal, pintails, etc were 10 pointers.

Last year, my buddy shot 12 mallards with three shots.

One of the older fellas at work was telling me that years back he dropped 22 or 23 snows out of one flock when he lived in Saskatchewan. This happened back in the days of lead shot though.

Is it september the 8th yet???

I'm feel'in kinda small over here with my 6 teal. My budy and I had a flock of seven land out infront of us. We did the count of 3 and stood up, we each fired one shot, both at the same time. 5 outa the 7 went down and then I nocked down one more on my second shot.

How dose you shooting a coot 4 times on the water ,sense it swam into you, with a gun that should only shoot 3 shots ,but I guess you must have loaded another shell, then letting him get away have to do with your dad being a black belt in Karate. I just don’t see the correlation. :umm:

Now to explain myself they did not fly into us they more or less flew up from the pond that we were jump shooting. So you see it is possible to do that and not use any special "Karate" powers :umm: .

Here is my answer. My dad is not a Blackbelt in Karate, I did not shoot at a Coot four times, and I did not beat my chest like a stud duck hunter either! That is my point. But one time in Band Camp...... :toofunny:

Over the course of two weekends we totally annhilitated a flock of 20 teal. We would get 5 or six at a time, they would always come back to the pond. How do we know they were the same Teal? Cause each weekend there were less and less till we had all 20 dead.

I had a flock of mallards come in on me once, low and fast, I shot the lead bird and WAM! he dropped at my feet, SCARED the CRAP out of me, so much so, that I dropped my call in the mud. I grabbed that sucker by the neck and yanked the feathers out of his rear with my teeth and started blowing as hard as I could. Within seconds he "cleared" out and I was singing a tune that even those mythilogical syrens heads would have turned. That flock swung right around and Bang! Bang! Bang! I got 3 more birds. Ever since then I got a mustache, ... and my Dad told me that only chicken poop under yur nose makes the hair grow. Well, duck poop works just as good!
