Great question Rusty! You definitely have to take that into consideration... :shock:

You don't want to damage the meat.

The art of roost shooting also includes catching said bird as he tumbles out of tree as to not damage the meat .

Make sure you're wearing long sleeves though.  I've had my arms scratched up pretty bad by the spurs cuz the birds are still thrashing around a bunch as they fall.

Au contraire, it's not the pellets that generally kills the bird, it's the tumble down the tree. There really IS a science to this once you have it figured out. :tooth::tooth:
