    1 of the lads on our shoot dropped 4 greys to 1 shot, still hasn't forgot about it yet, gets regularly mentioned

    In my opinion there is nothing clever a shooting at a flock/covey of birds. I would pick one bird at good range and try to shoot it clean. well done if that's your aim. If by accident its just a fluke. woodfordfallow

    Mine was a total fluke to be honest.
    Swung on the lead bird and dropped then killed a 3rd clean.It happens now and again but not often.
