Default 100 Birds With One Shot

Talk about filling up the boat, er punt.

Or, how about 419 ducks downed with a single volley from 4 punt guns.
Partial reason for the decline in duck population.

Market hunting was a common practice. Punt guns were basically a smooth bore cannon mounted to a punt (boat) and loaded with around 2 lbs of shot. The birds usually shot while rafted on the water. The practice was outlawed when ducks started declining. Huge numbers of birds were slaughtered and sent to market. The Passenger Pigeon was slaughtered into extinction by market hunters.
