I try to line them up any chance I get, but never had more than 2 with one shot. I have had 2 ducks with one shot in the air before, I try to line them up in the air as well. But a group comes into the deeks, dove or duck, I let them land, go for the skillet shot with first shell, then kill more as they fly off. Howbout you. popcorn

I would share a story about a legendary skillet shot. A shot whispered to happen on evenings with an early moon rise in a light autumn breeze. In the time ever so fragile as daytime Temps remain hot and nights are cold. These skillet shots are frequented in Scurry and Borden counties.

However, as I am not comfortable the statute of limitations ever expire, I can not share the specifics. I will only say, Yes Virginia, there is a Santa Clause. grin

PS, the details are pretty shady.

5 BWT in the air with one shot is my best. Coolest I have seen is when my dad knocked 4 drake mallards out of the air with one shot when I was a teenager.

I have a buddy that, when you give him enough to drink, tells a hilarious story about a cold morning, just before sunrise, and a turkey roost.

Your twofer skillet shot at Mallard Honey Hole to finish our limit was a pretty good one!
I got a chuckle out of it.

I've shot two doves twice w one shot in my life so far. Once when I was maybe 13 down in goliad hunting with my dad and his buddies, then last yr when I was 36 at my own place in Haskell. I've shot plenty of doubles but one twice have i dropped 2 doves w one shot

My best was on the King Ranch on a cast and blast. A large flock of doves came winging in and I dropped 5(yes, 5) and after all the hooping and hollering, one of my buddies said I'd never do that again. About that time another group came in and I dropped 3 with one shot. I think it still took near a box of shells to limit out.

OK, I admit I skillet shot a BWT last season. During early teal, first hunt, was solo. Was way slower than I thought based on scouting - so a typical North TX hunt. Finally had a single come right to the dekes. I was so surprised that it didn't drop on my first shot that it took me a bit too long for the follow up. Never scratched a feather.

So I sat there convinced my gun/ammo totally screwed me somehow. As I sat there contemplating how there is no way I could have missed that layup, three snunk in under the radar. I didn't know they were there until I heard the plops in the dekes. I decided I needed to pattern the load... and no better way than to skillet shoot the furthest one (away from the dekes). Yep, it turned out it wasn't the gun. About took the head off the one on the water and followed up on the other two when they jumped.
