Why blow money on hsells when you can use a penny and half worth of ammo on a small ritter like that?
We are talking about 15.00 a season.
Many people I meet in the woods will spend 500+ on a high end .22 or high end glass for their rifle. Then they ask why I use a shotgun as "the shells cost so much", then the same people will shoot clay pigeons all day and act like it is nothing "Oh the shells are cheap".
Or they will buy some 500.00 piece of hunting bling (or camo crap).
For me shotgun shells cost .15 each, last time I checked my plinking rifles ammo cost .23 each. So what I used in the woods I did not use at the range.
