There’s nothing quite like dove hunting with a 12 gauge. You get to sit down and await incoming birds, the weather outside tends to still be warm enough to be comfortable, and, perhaps best of all, doves show up in groups – often really big groups. So what’s the trick to bagging multiple doves from one bevy? Well, first, pick a bird, and stick to it. Don’t worry about how many doves are milling around and whether or not you’ll bag more, just focus on one. After you hit that one, select another, and so on. Thinking about the need to make multiple shots in quick succession is a good way to take your mind – and eye – off the target, and that means one or more missed shots.
Another secret to dove hunting success is loading your shotgun with the right ammunition. These rounds are made by Estate for your 12-gauge shotgun. Each round is 2 ¾” long which is the standard and most common size of shotshell. Even so, always be absolutely sure you know what length shotshell your shotgun is designed to use, because trying to use the wrong length can have catastrophic results. These rounds contain a 1 ounce load which gives you enough power to take down birds without hitting them with excessive force, and 1 ounce also keeps recoil more manageable, making accuracy easier to obtain. These shotshells leave your shotgun with a muzzle velocity of 1290 feet per second. Each round is filled with #8 lead shot which is great for doves. This ammunition is good for hunting game such as doves and also for target shooting.
When you place your order for this single box of ammunition from Estate you get 25 rounds. This box is a great size for toting in your pack or stacking on the shelf of your gun safe – or stashing in your truck for your dove hunt. Just remember to order enough boxes for some practice in advance of your hunt and enough to be well stocked for the hunt itself. Remember, you can never have too much practice or too much ammunition!
