    Your longest successful shot with a scattergun

    For me, it was a stoat at about 70-80m with a Baikal under/over using lead #4's.

    It fair stank. I guess I must've popped something vital with a pellet. I took a quick look, then exited stage left.

    lucky shot off the back of the landcruiser as the old man raced down the paddock to stop a black backed gull pecking eyes out of a couple new born lambs about 75m with an old single barrel 12g hammer gun choke is so tight its a rifle under 30m.

    Best shot was when I was about 17, shit 50 odd years ago, had my Great Grand dads Single shot Hollis, still got it, Full choke! Walking up a valley when about 20 ducks came down the valley in close formation, at about 10,000 feet. I up with the gun to the laughing of my mates and pulled the trigger. One solitary duck out of the middle of the flight folded its wings and came down like a bomb. Landed in the pig fern, never to be seen again. must have been impressive to remember all these years later!

    Yeah similar with the pump action on the back of a ute with a bunch of other blokes on my first easter bunny shoot at alex.
    First shot for the weekend, one arm stretched out the side so it was past everyone, way past 50m at a plover....going down the race at 30odd ks an hour. Hit a bump as I shot and I'm sure I was aiming high. The stars aligned and the bird lifted as I shot and flew straight into it. Mate hassles me now for such a tin arse shot because that was all it was but I do have a witness.
    I've also done a bit like @Maca49-a few of those either reflex shots or just luck ones where one pellet must get them in the brain or something and they fall like a brick.
    Try it again and no lock

    Mine was a duck, we all know that loner that just keeps circling but won't come in. It had honestly been going around and around for about 20 minutes at about 200 feet (writers liberty taken here) in the middle of the day. Stuck a No 3 lead in gave it about a 4 foot lead and pulled the trigger............ down it came in a screaming heap. I plucked that entire duck and all I could find was a single pellet entry under it's neck and no exit hole and like Macca that was a long time ago but still remember it as clear as day

    A Roe Deer with my old M87,extra full choke and a load of #2.
    Long enough away for the Hunting leader to go apoplectic.

    Still dropped it though.

    Me & my mate were hunting new years day in a forest , we had caught a good eating pig so I said to my mate everytime we see a deer its when im driving a bit faster round the tracks sure enough snap a good size red stag in velvet took off he was running full tit to quick to duck off into the trees so it wasn't till we came to a cut over a few 100 meters along he left the track , I watched as the stag galloped off with the mate lining it up out the window with buckshot it had to be at least 70 meters away when he fired I could not believe it hit the deck , we ran over to it mate grabs said stag by the back leg only to get a kick in the cods , fires his last shot in the under n over at near point blank range & missed !! it turned into a wrestling match ...for him !!! I ran back to the truck to get more ammo ..on latter inspection 2 pellets hit antlers & 1 pellet hit it directly in the back of the skull but did not penetrate it lol

    Me and two bro in laws were drifting down the Waikato river years ago. There was nothing doing until about midday a lone parrie came flying up the river about a mile high. Out of sheer boredom we each fired a shot at it and it plummeted down stone dead. Each one claimed the kill so when we got home one bro in law said , "better pluck that Bird". Why?, the other two of us asked. "You'll see" he says. Sooo, we plucked the duck. Lo and behold! a single very large hole right through, breast and back. Then he pulls out a cartridge. "take a look at this" he says. It was 00 buckshot.
