    I revel in my long amazing shots....forget about the missed ones....and don't bitch about the ones other people take. just my way of hunting it's only ammo and they let me throw 3 at em so I'll take the shot. when it says "long range" on my shotshell boxes...well I'm just going to take them to task on that

    Just messin with ya Jack. There is actually nothing more frustrating than having skybusters all around you. Hard enough to deal with all the inherent challenges of duck hunting, then to get screwed by the morons around you will drive you nuts.

    skybusting is a slang term for shooting at birds that are way too high.....Some people around here also call it the dbar.

    Skybusting or shooting high is directly related to that hunters ability to get birds in close. The higher you shoot the less talent you have.

    That being said, here is my weds shoot on 9 shots, I missed one bird and shot one a second time while it was falling

    Nice strap Stefan.
    I could care less about skybusters if there are lots of birds around, frustrating if there are only a few and they want to work.
    Waste those 25 shots you got on you and take the walk of shame...

    Boy, if Jack has this much dis-content for sky busters duck hunting, I hope he never goes goose hunting! Oy Vay!
