Yeah I've learned the "Finish It" lesson the hard way #4 shot tends to knocke the birds out of the air but not outright kill because of extended range shots. My hunting experience so far has been limited to jump shooting on the rivers near my house. I haven't had the chance to hunt over decoys. Well it always seems that we knock birds down and then the blind get caught in a tree so we have to get unstuck to move then the ducks have dove under before we can get to them. So the last one I shot until it dropped its head and spread its wings.
