I consider a double to be two birds with one shot, a triple three birds with one shot, and so forth. I see from time to time poeple describe a double or triple as two ducks with two shots or three ducks with three shots. That would be two singles or three singles. Just wondering what everyone else thought about the double and triple.

My perspective is 2 with 1 shot.

I lost a case of Hieneken and a steak dinner to my Dad when he shot two doubles in a row Dove hunting during my youth. Double - one shot for two birds. My 2 cents..

my terminology:

Crackshot = one bird, One shot, stone cold dead (no cripple)
Double= Two birds down, one shot, cripple or dead
Duce=two birds, unloaded gun
Crack duce= two stone cold birds, two shells.
7/10 split= 3 birds, one shell, cripple ok. (10-7=3..)
triple= 3 birds, unloaded gun.
Big Fish Story= 4+birds, 3 shells.
Wal-mart Special= unloaded gun, one spoonie, and a cripple follow-up shot.

Whatever your definition I had my first downing of two ducks with one loading of the firearm today.

Hit-Miss-hit this morning. Done it with Dove several times. Even had a streak of 6 straight dove, but this was the first time with ducks.

A double is shooting two birds with either two or three shots.

A scotch double is two birds with one shot.

That's exactly what I was going to post. Surprised no one else mentioned the scotch double until now. IMO a double is probably more impressive than a scotch double because more than one bird with one shot is pretty much dumb luck.

Okay guys, I got one for ya...

Went out for a quick dove hunt this evening. First group of birds come in and I drop 2 with the first shot then dropped another bird with the second shot. What is that called? Is that a triple or what?

I also dropped the next pair that came in with one shot. Then shot a single that came in a little later. So, I got 6 birds with 4 shots. My dog was pretty happy with that lol.

If you have a group come in, no matter how many shots 1,2,3, whatever falls is whats considered a single, double, or triple. So yes, in your case you got a triple.

Killing two birds with two shots is a double. Killing two with a single shot is a Scotch double.

I would still consider those singles, one bird one shot, is a single bird down from a single shot, if that was the case would a five bird limit with five shots at different times be considered a quintuple? It would have to be if one where using the logic of birds down to shots fired.

I don't agree with you there Sethfish...it's much easier to shoot two birds several minutes apart than it is to shoot two (bang, bang) back to back in the same flight. As I said in the other post, a double (the standard definition of two birds in the same flight with two shots) is more impressive IMO than a scotch double because most of the time a scotch double is dumb luck. In fact there are a lot of people that would admit to shooting a scotch double when they didnt mean to because it put them over the limit or killed a hen as well as the drake they were shooting at.

I understand that logic and agree shooting two birds out of a single group is difficult, but I wouldn't consider it a double. I think it should more accurately be described as I killed two out of that group with two shots, but I understand why so many call it a double, because double sounds cooler. Yes it is luck with double most times, that is what makes it special, but the way so many people shoot, including myself many times this year even the single are lucky.
