Yeah he gave me 4 that day and i have 2 left. I try to back up my first shot with a extended range. I called a bird all the way down a logging road last year and he got to the decoys and started acting funny and i shot, well he rolled over with legs kicking in the air and i laid my gun down and pulled my face mask down and as i was getting up i sen him take flight and fly across a cutover, I was shocked and never really have got over it lol I searched that cutover pretty good and never found him. Thats the reason i bought a Auto...I had never had that happen before and once i shot 1 and it took off running and i shot again and he ran faster like i didn't touch him so i took off running across a huge plowed field behind him and 300+yards later i seen him again at the corner of the field so i ran toward him and he tucked under some brush to die when i got there...It was crazy, I thought i was going to have a Heart attack chasing him but if i hadn't went after him, i would have never known he died. Turned out to be my only double beard and it was on my Late Mothers Birthday. Makes me wonder how many birds go off and die.
