I shot 2 ducks last year at 60yds but I usually won't attempt a shot that far. I feel comfortable at 40 to 45yds depending on the situation. What's y'alls longest shot?

Skybuster you are.

I'm a decent caller so I shoot them 20-30y feet down. I also pattern my gun to shoot perfect at those distances.

Bob Brister killed pigeons at 100 yds...
full choke 1100, I think...
pigeon shoots for $ are a high-stakes deal...
kinda like steer tripping...you haveta be invited...
I've seen some way-up pass shots on geese, too....
100+yds...
we open up on them coming over camp...
pretty cool watching one fall from stratosphere...

In the era of shooting steel, about 60 at the sprig I got on the wall from the coast. Just kept doin that pinner thing, circling just out of my comfort zone. Finally had enough and took the shot.

It's all about where I am. I hunt a lot of big lakes so I don't normally do that. The chance of losing a cripple is too high. If I'm on a pond or somewhere that I know I won't lose one (like a big marsh flat) I'll let it fly out to 50 every now and then.

I used my rangefinder once to gauge the out edges of my rice check on a federal spot, the outer edge was 65 yards, a sprig paddled in right at the edge, and I took him by lobbing in 3 1/2" #2s, how in the world do you guys estimate how high ducks are above you? I know I've led high ducks so far that it seems like 3 seconds before the BBs get there, and I've shot at geese where you could actually hear the BB's hitting them but never phased them.

I have too but back in the day when lead was legal. 00 buck. All it took was one pellet. One hit just below breast bone and the other, a speck, I busted a wing. Brother yelled at me for sky busting and I said it is not sky busting when they hit the ground.

It's not skybusting if you hit it.
