A few months ago while I was in Pa bear hunting I decided to go rabbit hunting while everyone else was enjoying a few beers(guns where gone) I had to borrow some birdshot from my uncle.the shells looked like they had survived a nuclear apocalypse and than thrown in the ocean for a few months, I couldn't make out what brand they where but they said #6s. After kicking out a brush patch a huge bird shot up and screamed at me. I jumped up almost peeing my pants and holding the gun about at my hip pulled the trigger. That bird was the best thing I have ever eaten in my life. To bad they're arnt many of them in Virginia.

5 or 6 shot.
Aim for the Thoracic Triangle area between the armpits and base of throat.

Yeah I used to get them off the deck of the combine while we were harvesting the corn with an over under savage 222/20 ga we used 2 3/4 in #5 IIRC ( I was lil like 10 y/o) One day I bagged 9 with not one pellet in the bodies( My Stepdad still brags about that to this day) I guess shooting from an elevated position from about 10 ft I lead the birds just right and only hit the heads and necks. We were eating pheasant for like a week pheasant breast and pheasant soup.
