Shooting Multiple Birds with One Shot
Getting more than one bird (e.g. ducks) in one shot is no accident, nor is it luck. Here is how: 1) get good with your firearm (so that you are a good shot); 2) use quality ammo and the correct gun and choke (for regularly taking your waterfowl); 3) deliberately pick a predominant bird that happens to have one or several beside and behind it and deliberately aim at the predominant bird. Then pull the trigger. If you just get the bird you are aiming at - you haven't lost anything. But, you will often get the one you are aiming at and perhaps one to the side or behind. But, if you try to get more than one bird by "flock shooting" or shooting between birds – you will probably just get air.
