Usually i just chew well and pick the shot out as i come across it. Buddy today though got me thinkin, talkin about the shot being lead and all. You guys pull it out first? What do you use? Tweezers?? Mahalo Nui Loa, Stone

just eat it. in pelletized form, it will go right through you, unless you crush it and then yu might pick up a little bit-but unless you eat doves every night, that shouldn't be a problem. course, if it's steel shot, that stuff will break a tooth and you might want to chew carefully.

Its a rare bird that will have some retained shot. My son and I came back with 21 birds last weekend. Im just careful, there may be a pellet in that bite to break a tooth on. kinda like eatin fresh fish that may have a bone or two Aint it fun? Lebrew

I've been dove hunting my entire life and a few years ago I actually decided to start going for head shots. When I miss not it's almost always from shooting ahead of the bird. My shooting percentage has stayed the same, if not risen, probably because I concentrate more on each shot, and I get far fewer wounded birds. Many birds will only have a small drop of blood or two in their head when I get em, and they usually drop like a rock. Last year I had one comming in low and fast and I took his head clean off. It looked like I had caught a live bird and pulled his head off. I knew something was weird when it hit the ground and was still flopping, because I knew I had scored a direct hit, until I saw his head had completely disappeared.

it's rude to spit the shot out on the china. but it does make a satisfying clinking sound.

eat the shot. The FDA puts vitamin C in it.

Yeah, most of my hunting buddies think it's pretty neat. If I were half as handy with a rifle as I am with a shotgun....well, it would be impressive [;)]

I thought you were on the firing line at ETH's June party when one of the guys pulled a Glock and nailed a flying bird with the first shot. I wasn't there but heard about it. Energizer,,, was that YOU?
