Story: Duck shooting

Hitting the target

Hitting the target

A hunter brings down Canada geese in flight. The birds have been successfully attracted by the decoys, and the shotgun blast has hit at least one. The gun’s auto-loading ability will enable the hunter to get in further shots before the birds are out of range.
