Hola,
I remember an epic resortero shot as a little kid. One day my brother and I were walking on the railroad tracks. My brother spotted an Inca dove about 20 meters away on a five meters wall, it was a long shot for a twelve year old boy. I thought that he was not going to take the shot, but he did and hit the target
.The impact was so laud, like if the bird had been blown to pieces. Great shot!


Since that day I have walked the railroad tracks and relived the shot made by my brother. Even up today,
I used to think that I could not make a shot similar to that one... or maybe I could.


A few days ago, as I was walking along the Lerma River bank, I spotted a pair of inca doves. One flew away and the other one stopped and perched about 25+ meters from me at a high eucaliptus tree. I had just shot another inca dove in my previous shot and felt like, I could shoot and hit close to this one. I prepare my shot and took it. The taconite pellet flew and I had the chance to put down the resortera before I saw a solid impact at the dove. I got very excited, since it was a 25+ meters shot. I just saw how the inca dove plunged down inside the river groove. There was no flipping or movement from the bird once it was reached by the projectile, it was dead upon impact.

I saw where the dove fell and looked for it in the high grass for a couple of minutes. I finally founded it, but when I picked up I noticed that it had no head! A found the head just about a step away from the body. This was finally, my epic shot one that I am sure I will never forget, but I still believe that my bother's resortero shot was way better. Saludos

haha, nice shot ! My first kill was similar to this, I've been wondering though, how large are inca doves say, in comparison to white wings?

Good shot Xidoo,

You have become a specialist in hunting ground doves (inca doves) and you are one he|| of a marksman pin point laser accuracy on a living moving target.

Eres el conguero te aventaste carnal, muy buen tiro

Tocayo, It is a pleasure to share these these two different shots. I must state that I love this shot, but my brother's was better. Saludos
