That guy knows how to line his shots up. He made quite a few doubles with one shot in that video.

No closer than I had them this year..... I'm thinking he was shooting improved choke or maybe even cyclinder bore to be getting that many doubles at such a close range.


If I had used my 870 with the poly choke this year I probably could have droped multiple birds every shot.


Aren't they still allowed to use lead?....................

It's a small condolence, but Canada's location on the globe at least lets me pretend that God sort of brushed them off to the side.

He's probably shooting lead too, they're folding way too nicely.

You could use a sling shot at that range. That's what it looks like when you're not trying to "sky bust"

I could kill 160 geese too if I could just stick my barrel up and touch the goose and shoot.

Another problem with them getting that close is with a full or even modified choke they ca be easy to miss.. Don't ask how I know....not much pattern at that range................

Probably could have killed them with a 410..............

That crap was crazy.
There are only two types of people in the world, those who love duck hunting and those who never have duck hunted.
