Ruthless indeed.
Back in the day, a wealthy or royal hunter would take a whole team of guides, and servants with him,
when they would encounter a herd, they would all fire and slaughter the entire group of animals.
The wealthy hunter of course, claiming all the kills as his own, becomes legendary.
It's easy to see how these numbers become inflated.
Kind of like saying Hitler killed thousands of people.
He's responsible, just didnt actually kill them all by his own hand.

Also dont discount the type of animal killed. There are places in South America where very large flocks of doves destroy the crops of farmers. There are no limits on the numbers that can be killed. These bird fly in very tight clumps and shooting into them with shotguns can produce dozens of dead birds with a single pull of the trigger.
Its not hard to imagine that flocks this large could have been common in the Dukes day and his travels would have put him onto more fruitful sites.
