Shooting doves in South America is very similar to shooting doves here, except when you shoot 15 down there, you're just getting warmed up. On an afternoon dove hunt you might shoot 1,000 rounds if you are really ambitious. However, as the slowest reloader in the group that went to Argentina, I shot 12 to 13 boxes** in an afternoon, with breaks to hang out and practice my Spanish with the bird boy. No birds went to waste: there are a lot of poor people in South America. We ate many birds ourselves, and I brought a cooler of doves and ducks back with me from Argentina, too.
