Good work Mallardbuster. Was that an evening shoot.
Unfortunately I am not going to make it for my usual Thursday night shoot. The kids will be dissatisfied.
100% Mauser308 did you just hit first shot and then come home to write it up.😀
Turkey with a bow, that could have a lot of meanings. 🤔😀


Haha no unfortunately that was  the only one that came in, nothing else was interested.

Good shooting Mallard Buster.
  

Speed is thrilling, Diameter does the killing.

Awesome shooting guys!

Ive had an interesting few days here hosting a Tv crew for a hunting show. It was the presenters first time duck shooting and he did really well! I cant give a full run down of the tallies as is was just too hectic for me to keep that in mind and quite a few shots were fired just for cinematic purpose like close ups of ejecting cartridges, smoking barrels and some clay targets to be sure he could shoot well etc. With all that included we used 65 rounds for 20 ducks and 3 pheasant.
It was a different experience, and trying to shoot well attached to cameras, trying to cleanly kill birds while also trying to hit birds at points in the sky where the camera could catch it etc was challenging, but i'm really happy with how we did.
Most embarrassing moment for me was while doing an interview, a lone parries flys over hight but shootable. The producer whispers, "I want you to shoot that bird!" I pick up my gun and proceed to miss it with both barrels! The host laughing and saying  something to camera Like "I believe he missed!"  Grin
Best of the day was a pair of mallards coming in and both of us taking a clean bird each at exactly the same moment..... then camera man informing us he couldn't get the shot.
Was really impressed with the efforts the crew took to capture the spirit and reality of our sport. They never gave up even under challenging circumstances.

The first mallard of the day and first duck Owen had shot turned out to have a band. Only the second banded bird shot here in 32 or more years which was really cool!

Yesterday at lake Ellesmere.
10 mallards
4 geese
Shots fired at birds in the air 20
Finishing woundies off 4
Missed shots may of been a result of birds turning with the wind while responding to first shots at their mates and seeing them fall out of the sky. Challenging shots when they are hell bent on getting away as fast as poss with a strong wind to help them.
Didn't hear many other shots fired either.
Teal numbers good. Saw about 2000 I reckon, not far from my feeder!!!!!

Bit embarrassing last week so I was a bit naughty and didn't post.
Some ducks gave me the run around in the mangroves (not actually mangroves).
Fired two shots at fleeing ducks and missed.
0 dead
0 wounded
2 shots
0 unretrived

Tonight was one of my best shots coming in low and fast, on dusk.
Left to right nailed it.
1 dead
0 wounded
1 shot
0 unretrived

Nice one DHDS,

Nothing embarrassing there. For my part, its exactly why I created this thread, as i found that when I focussed more on the mistakes or misses and reasoned why, rather than concentrating on the good shots and birds killed, I found my results improved.

Just wondering what people’s thoughts were about the season,How to improve etc,Well my thoughts were birds were hard to get on opening had a couple good paddock hunts,need to do more door knocking also to improve on goose caller ( get a new goose caller) more full body decoys ( flocked) by myself,Bit more work on pond, Wink Wink

Cant really contribute a whole heap. Our season was pretty good on the whole. enough birds, happy with our shooting, set up etc. Only fly in the ointment was probably wind direction which made opening a bit more difficult than ordinary.

last Sunday,got permission to sit on farm pond..my good wife agreed to come along too which is a first. I set up simple layout,6 birds in close and a splasher,flasher for movement. first pair died,dogs retrieved, 2nd pair saw my wife fire her first ever shot at a duck and got BOTH Shocked the wee .410 insert in 40 year old single barrel astra had struck again Wink. we retrieved those two birds allowing the 10yr old blind cocker spaniel to swim out a couple of yards to get one of them...lots of talking to guide him back in...wee tail is still wagging today.
wife went home lunchtime,I ent back out and manged a couple of parries and the only mallard we DIDNT find for day..it dived and kept diving ,somehow making it to somewhere the dog didnt sniff out...one of the few birds we havent collected all season.
6 mallards
3 parries
1 hare.
1 happy cocker spaniel
1 very proud hubby.
