Morning hunt 12 gauge semi auto 7 birds on 19 shells this evening 5 birds on 14 shots with 28 gauge O/U. First time out with the 28 and I credit my shooting to young stupid birds

28 ga. 15 with 28. was 6 for 6 on floaters into a pond. Gave my spot up for a new hunter and went to the speedsters. They were much more challenging. The oilpatch has birds this year.

Personally, I feel cheated if I can't go through 3 boxes for a limit.

Depends a lot how the birds are flying, the amount of birds, and what type of shots I'm taking. If there are a lot of birds, they are decoying, and I'm picking my shots...I can get a limit with one box, or less. But if he birds are tough and I'm going for tough long shots 2 or 3 boxes.

Lying is lying. Don't bitch about one doing it and condone another. That's called hypocrisy.
