6 shell challenge

Postby laduckhunter16 » Thu Nov 14, 2013 9:04 pm

Every year at the camp we choose one morning where everyone takes part in the 6 shell challenge. Everyone gets 6 shells, 6 decoys, a shotgun, calls nothing else. No one is allowed to hunt out of a blind. And no one is allowed to hunt toghter. This is our way of determining who is the real hunter. Who ever ever comes back with the most ducks wins. I thought i would share this with everyone and would like to hear if anyone else had any competitions like this that they do. I should add that i hunt coastal marshes Where we shoot mostly teal, galdwal, and the ocasional unlucky mallard or pintail.

I would hate to think i blew a great morning in the marsh with tons of birds working because I only took 6 shells and wasnt shooting well.

This 6 shell challenge has the makings of an epic ground pound/water swat written all over it! :sarcmark:

We do something similar. Well, it's a little different . . .

We clip high birds and then see who can get six in em before they hit the water. Winner gets to drink the kill through a straw.

Do coots count? I bet I can get 40. You can keep the decoys too.

I can't kill a cripple on the water with 6 shells.

Every year I usually attend the Torrington 2-shot goose competition in Wyoming. It's a good time! One blind, 2 hunters, 2 shells each. Sure makes a guy very picky about his shot selection.

My first reaction to this post was to make-up some game about hunting noobs like in The Most Dangerous Game or that Ice T movie. Then I just wanted to say that the OP needs to reevaluate his definition of real hunter. Sweet baby jeebus (thanks UR) what is this forum doing to me?

OK. Here goes.

It's not really a game per se, but it is a lot like what the OP was talking about. One of the guys keeps bringing this really annoying kid to our camp. Says he feels sorry for him. He's a nice enough kid, just so annoying. I mean, he has a target barrel on his duck gun for pete's sake. When we can't stand to hunt with him one more day, we tell him it is time for the Six Shell Challenge to see who the Real Hunter is. We give him six shells and six decoys, tell him the blinds are off limits, and send him off into the marsh. We act like we are playing too, but all meet at our favorite blind (the one he doesn't even know about) where we usually limit on greenheads for an enjoyable, responsible hunt. It might be a little mean, but it preserves our sanity and hasn't hurt his feelings yet. The guy still thinks the six shell challenge is a real thing. :no:

I knew it you *****. I go off lost in the damn marsh for hours while I hear all this shooting. I got six coot decoys and 6 3.5" shells and only a 2 3/4 gun. I just curl up and cry in the fetal position. I hate all of you I hope you all get leaky waders and Turkey lice on your sacks

We do not have an official event but we usually end up with a day that plays out with everyone using six shells, but we still hunt together. It definitely slows down our member who is always first to shoot and never leaves one in the tube. :yes:

What happens to the loser? Pretty sure I'd be the "non" hunter with an empty box of shells and a full strap of ducks in my blind.

As kids we'd go out and camp on the barrier islands only bringing canned vegetables. No limit on shells but if you didnt bring meat back you didnt eat. Unless it was a crow or trash duck then thats all the meat you got BUT you got to eat. It wasnt long after a few no duck bluebird days we found alternative game.
