What is your preferred shotguns/shells/choke

Thoughts on aftermarket chokes?

What about decoy spreads/calls?

Just dove into duck hunting with both feet after a few years of shooting them casually

Reay don't know much about the finer points of hunting ducks, I'm still in the learning stages

I'm shooting a beretta A300 12 gauge with 3" no. 2 kent silver steel and 3" no.4 black cloud close range for decoying birds close

Before I was shooting them with a 20 gauge with kent fasteel in no.3 and 4
