Not bring down, put in the bag, yes. More shot in a pattern never hurts, Lord knows these turkey hunters now days are pushing the #7 HS pretty hard for a denser pattern, I am just talking about the swatter/slapper round to finish off a cripple, but alas, I guess I am the only one that have a few die hard cripples out there, even if I have a wonder dog and bone crushing chokes.

No one would admit it, but sometimes you just need to come to Jesus.

I shoot an SBE and shoot HM for geese along with HS depending on the situation. How long you been shooting - Blind Side is what I meant with the acronym
I AM A POTTY MOUTH -- I AM A POTTY MOUTH -- I AM A POTTY MOUTH -- I AM A POTTY MOUTH - It just came out last year, didn't it? I also shoot an SBE, older but still does pretty good short of having a laser designator.

The coup de grace fails me yet again, should have tried harder in French class.

I checked on the blind side, 100% hex shot, look real close to the right and left, does it look like a copper BB or it it just me? Actually, I see a couple of BB's in there....hmmmmmmmm

As far as dogs go, if you are hunting standing/sheltered water, makes it a lot easier for a dog to fetch up a duck v. current, tidal, wind and ice. A dog is a great tool, but sometimes they still have to be left home if the conditions warrant, if not, guess you will be looking another up in the want ads.

Anytime I'm hunting with chadair, I slip a few 3.5" turkey loads into his blind bag to use a swatter rounds, if needed.

Gives me the ammo needed to put a final smack down on a goose, and keeps ME outta trouble.

Like I've said many times, TOPWATERS HAVE WAYYYY MORE FUN DUCK HUNTING.

As one old dog told me as a kid, shot'em in da head and it don't matter. As he got the last word out of his mouth, a bird came in straight at him and he emptied his gun without cutting a feather. I hit the bird direct overhead, turned and asked, is that what you meant to do? I can not repeat the rest of his lesson.

I carry some cheap #2's just in case I have a crip or I shot so lousy that I run out of good shells.

Swatter/slapper rounds just smaller steel shot (6/7) to put one in the ol head. plus they work real good on teal. Some WMA/refuges require you to use them 100% of the time for all game. Check out Walmart

Used 6's last year, found these, inside 30 yards, one shot to take care of a cripple, coots during youth season, 3 shots, 13 of them
