Sounds above average to me! I don't practice so I might go 3 for 3 and then take 6 shots and nothing. So as long as I stay under two boxes I am good.

The only thing I count is birds to make sure I don't go over a limit and sometimes beers to make sure there is enough. This counting of shells stuff is corny...is it suppost to tell you if you are a good shot? Or does it tell you that maybe you had easy shots? I guess it's better than skyblasting all day.

I too would go out and make noise but now days I am a bit older and try to make each shot count.

avg can depend on a lot of things... if I'm hunting where a limit is inevitable, I could make myself go 15/15 or 15/20.... if I'm hunting where I will do good to have 5 or 6 birds to shoot at, then I might go 5 birds for 2 boxes of shells just because I will be taking my chances more often.

Funny thing is, if there are more birds, my hit rate is far higher as I carefully choose my shots. Maybe use a box of shells or less for 15 birds.

Fewer birds and I'm shooting more at things that are well in range, but not the higher percentage shots.

I went on a last minute hunt last year, had an hour to shoot in your face dove going to a windmill/tree. Shooting a borrowed RH pump (used to my LH auto) and think I finally connected on my 25th shot! Normally I would have about 10 times the amount of birds in the bag by then! It was insanely horrible shooting and couldn't remember to pump the gun. Still a very memorable and fun hunt.
