This was the best public hunt I've ever been on. The pintail curse continues. I am convinced that my browning maxus has a curse that will not allow me to shoot a pintail. I whiffed on a group right in my decoys.

Around 9 the guys I met up with and I were chatting and all of a sudden one says pintails. I grab my gun and there are 7-10, feet down, 5 foot off the water and we start shooting. They each got a drake (one really nice) and I got zip.

How do you like your Maxus? Love the feel of that gun

You will break the pintail curse eventually!

BTW, I love woodies! They are beautiful birds.

FYI I own a Maxus too... I love it. The smoothest and lightest handling semi-auto I've ever put in my hands. I got one the year they came out and have never had an issue with it at all.

As for the Maxus curse... You're probably looking at "dead" ducks before they're dead. I have had so many issues staying in good shooting form because I have gotten excited and quit putting my head on the stock and keeping my eyes on the rock- or in my case, the duck. If you can get the ducks down to the water, you have plenty of time. Just take your time, put the bead on the beak and follow through like a pro golfer.
