Thread: Left and a Right on Driven Birds. Why Doesn't Anyone Believe me?

    Left and a Right on Driven Birds. Why Doesn't Anyone Believe me?

    So last year I was really lucky to go on a gameshoot, and the first drive of the day was the wild duck drive. I got to shoot this instead of beating and my first two shots of the day brought down two ducks: a left and a right at about 45-50 yards. Everyone I've told so far either doesn't believe me or has called me an outright liar!

    Is the so called 'left and right' on driven birds that rare? Someone told me it took them almost 40 years to get a left and right like that on driven birds and no one would do it on their first shoot, let alone with their first two cartridges against wild duck.

    The gamekeeper witnessed my shooting that day and I'm thinking of asking him to sign something to prove it, what do you think?

    Sorry if this is posted in the wrong section

    Does it matter what other people think? If you know that you got it then does that not suffice?

    Hi josh
    It is not that rare for a left and a right when game shooting if you are in a good spot on a drive but it is still agreat achivement to do it and well done.
    Two years ago i did it shooting woodcock on a walkabout on some of the land i shoot on only problem was that there was just my dog with me to prove what i had done so no woodcock club for me yet!!! some people wait a life time for a left and right at woodcock I just hope if it happen's a again to me that i have a couple of witnesse's next time ?? if not i know what i did and thats all that maters to me.

    I'm probally just whinging a bit lol, but a left and right on woodcock is just brilliant! I hope you do it again with a witness present.

    Nice shooting.....I believe you.....If its achievable its possible thats all I can say on the matter. Nice to get a left and right no matter what your shooting. My mate has regularly had a left forwards and right when weve been out shooting Pigeons using his Beretta 3 shot. If they dont believe you its becasue they cant shoot and dont think its possible.

    Aye its not that rare, depends how much shooing you do, the more you do the more chance you will succeed, ive had plenty of left n rights over the years, but my favorite has been this year with two lots of left-middle-right on geese on the same flight.

    on the first drive on saturday, I had a right and left at pigeon, one dropped behind me over a ditch, the other fluttered down a hundred yards away, I sent the dogs, the big pup picked the closest, came back to the ditch and ate the bloody thing.
