I will be going on a guided deck hunt near Rockport on this coming Saturday. First time to duck hunt, so just looking for some tips. Was planning on running a modified choke with 3 inch #4s. Already have waders, but any tips on small things I might need or suggestions on ammo?

Thanks

That's a fine load. Have fun, kill your redheads, and keep your face down when the pintails circle.

^yup, all that. I'd recommend either a face-mask or paint for those wary pins too. I would also recommend a darker camo color, more geared towards deer hunting, as opposed to normal duck camo patterns. And I shoot 2s or 3s, but 4s will definitely do the job as long as you keep the shots to 40 yards at the max. Other than that, your guide should take care of everything else.

I usually have to wake him up first, and my decoy carrier as well
