Shotgun ammo is in the midst of a renaissance right now. About a month ago we showed you some rounds loaded with wildflower seeds that you can blast into your garden, and now we just got word of another brilliant ammo innovation: shells filled with herbs and spices. 

Much like Flower Shells, Season Shot is pretty much exactly what it sounds like – shotgun ammo that's loaded with high-density spice balls instead of steel pellets. These tightly-packed seasoning BBs are bound inside of an edible casing, and supposedly just as lethal as regular birdshot. The idea is that you actually shoot down live game with these badboys, and since the pellets are completely edible and will melt into the meat as you cook it, you don't have to go through all the trouble of dissecting your kill to pull out the steel bits.

Creator Brett Holm hatched the idea a few years ago after watching a friend prepare a game bird for dinner. Mindful of the dental damage that steel shots can cause, the friend meticulously tore through the bird until every last BB was gone. Eventually, what started as a game bird slowly turned into a pile of mush. Dissatisfied with this messy and inefficient technique, Holm decided to make something better. A few months later, Season Shot was born.

At this point in time, Holm hasn't started large-scale production on Season Shot, but he's developed and tested a few prototypes, and is working to bring his invention to consumers in the near future. Potential flavors include: cajun, lemon pepper, garlic, teriyaki, and honey mustard. Yum.
