just like the subject says, how many shells will it take you to limit on dove? I typically only fire warning shots on my first two shots and hit on my third shot so 3X15 is 45 shells... so two boxes ish. What about yall?

I feel cheated if I don't get to shoot 3 boxes on a limit.

I'll have 2 boxes with me.

One to use (normally get my limit in 18-20 rounds) in my Shell belt/bag. The first days I can usually pick my shots.

The other will most likely stay in my bucket I sit on, in case anyone else needs some (or I do on a bad day).

I'll carry two boxes, but hopefully can keep it to one... or at least not have to walk back to the truck for more.

I take the 4 box value pack. I'm not a very good shot, but it's still fun.

14 shells. 7 shells for hitting 2 birds with one shot, 1 shell to fill the limit, and 6 shells to blow holes in cactus after I'm done hunting in 12 minutes.

2 cases, but I have a bike trailer that I'm pulling with a mountain bike this year, at least on my property. If I was just humping a bucket and shotgun I'd take 3 boxes, expecting to shoot 40-60.

8. I plan on seven doubles and 1 single. I also plan on the Playboy Playmates showing up in our field and handing out beer, I may be off in my expectations
