Dove Hunting Embarrasment!

Postby waduckslayer101 » Mon Aug 11, 2008 12:18 pm

Ok I did some proir research on my shot to hit ratio on dove hunting. I shouldn't have becasue now I am spending hundreds of dollars at the local range trying to practice my shots before dove season. I averaged a mere 6 shots to every downed dove! :oops:
I was wonderin if i'm the only one that sucks at this stuff? what are you guys averaging at this point in time???
Its :hammer: time baby!!!

Well shoot. I am normally a good shot averaging about 1.5-2.0 shells per kill on ducks but for some reason I have a hard time hittin' dove!

ive usually got a one to one ratio on just about everything. windy days are about two to one. i shot clays for years before i ever started huntin. I just have to go shoot clays a few weeks before the season comes in to adjust and tune up after the off season though.
