But oddly enough, it's only when I'm hunting in the blind with four or five other guys. I know it doesn't seem legit. In fact, when I hunt alone, I miss often. Nonetheless, when hunting with a group, I somehow manage to kill all the ducks. I see the ducks, I aim, and I fire. Duck falls dead.

Any one else have this issue?

My brother had a spoonie shot landing in his lap this last weekend. I shot it again while it was falling out of the sky just to ruin his catch. I made sure to kill that bird until he died from it.

Sounds to me like your buddies can shoot well.

You ever notice "that guy" get's un-happy once his straps full and the group informs him he's done. "That guy" some how wants to keep shooting.

Lol. Yep. Still, each time I shoot, I'm under the assumption the falling dead bird is mine! Alas, I know it's not always possible...

Luckily, I'm upfront with my buds. I tell them my conundrum and I still get to hunt with them. So far, I've not been told my strap is full before the others...

I work under the "Hunt and release system", I prefer to scare the hell out of them and let some other hunter do the dirty work of killing and cleaning. up

I've thought about giving one of my buddies a box of blanks without telling him just to see how many birds he still claimed. I swear sometimes he doesn't even shoot and still claims the birds.

I work better when there's an audience of terrible shooters.

I'm usually the one calling them in and calling the shots, so I stay pretty busy in the blind whether I hunt solo or with people. I tend to rush shots out of my layout and forget to get a good mount before I start blasting. I corrected this by talking to myself through the actions... literally. I try to say "up and out" "mount" "lead the bird" "shoot 'em in the neck" "stay on the barrel" to myself now almost every time. In a stand up blind I have no issues- it's just from the layout.
