Surely someone makes a shoulder padded T-Shirt for these high target opportunity dove hunts. 74% is pretty darn good shooting, congrats!

Play games with a buddy tomorrow. Best percentage box for box like horse. Shoot a box left handed, upside down, try to kill 2 birds with one shot th most times In 25 shells.

Saves a tender shoulder, money and makes a cheap trip more fun.... and cheaper!

I am down here as well, today was our first day. It is hard for a Texas boy to understand just how many doves there really are. My son and I both shot over 250 in about 2 hours. Could have been probably 2X that if I didn’t stop to film him. The guide says he expects tomorrow’s hunt to be even better. I am not sure how.

This is a great bucket list hunt.

I have three buddies down here in the valley who made the 1500 club...they were rotating 3 20ga autos to keep them from burning up. Shoulders were black & blue for a week.

I honestly cannot imagine...I would get tired not getting anywhere to 500 in Mexico & just quit back in the 90's. I would like to make the trip someday.


Good stuff.

$13.75 per box.
Last year my nephew and his Texas Tech crew paid $10 a box.....but I can't remember the name of that lodge as my wife bought it for his wedding gift at SCI.
