Season Shot: Shotgun Shells Filled With Flavor Instead of Steel

Save time and season your bird on impact with Season Shot.

It’s been pretty wild lately in the shotgun shell market. We’ve previously reported on Flower Shells, the shotgun shells that you can use to plant seeds, but Season Shot is a whole ‘nother ball game.

Read about Flower Shells, the ammo that helps you garden with your gun.

How It Works

How It Works1. Load Season Shot like any other shotgun shell, and proceed to harvest a bird or two.

2. Forget about removing shot, and prepare the entire bird with the meltable pellets still inside.

3. Enjoy the preserved time and meat instead of busting teeth or wasting edible parts.

Just as the name implies, Season Shot uses high-density spice balls instead of steel pellets. They are wrapped inside an edible casing, and claim to be just as lethal as regular buckshot, with a range of around 45 yards.

The spice balls melt during cooking, preventing the need for any extensive cleaning or dissecting to rid the game meat of steel. No more biting down on metal while you’re trying to enjoy your harvest. An entire bird can be cooked, without the extra time involved in splitting the breast or otherwise manhandling the meat.

Meant for most game birds, Season Shot is predictably headed for some recognition amongst the hunting chefs concerned about the the journey from trigger pull to dinner plate.

Brett Holm is the founder and creator of Season Shot, and though the company isn’t quite ready for large-scale production, research and development has proven successful.

Here’s what Holm has to say on the company’s website about how the concept was started:

“I was watching a friend prepare a game bird for dinner. Mindful of the dental damage steel shots can cause, he started by discarding portions of the bird – too small, too much trouble. Then, to my amazement, he took the breast and started to mash it. Here a BB, there a BB – If he misses any the dentist is sure to know. What started out as a game bird, became a small pile of glop. Grab a bottle, a top, and a label, and you got baby food. DANG!”

Flavors of cajun, lemon pepper, garlic, teriyaki, and honey mustard are in the works.

Now you really can season your food from the field to the table.
