Anybody ever kill one in Washington or Oregon? Or, does anyone know of anyone that has?

I shoot the snot out of them...
To kill your targeted game bird at long range effectively your shotgun must shoot pellets that have the energy to kill at the max range you will be shooting. To kill consistently the load should also be choked correctly to achieve enough pattern density.

I like to shoot the Mute Coot. They die in a puff of black feathers and make great dog snacks in the off season.
