Since you are on a budget I'd suggest you go to Academy and get the following:

Game winner waders. They have waders ranging from $70-$160

Federal 3 inch #4 Steel for shells

Puddler pack of decoys and the egg weight Texas rig set.

Then have at it.

Things you might need:

A boat
A layout blind

Things you don't necessarily need but will want after you get addicted;

Dog
New shotgun
Calls of various brands and types
Better waders
Better decoys
More decoys
Better shells

No calls? When I had access to waterfowl land, I hunted with snake boots, a mallard call, some MOJOs (dove and duck) and some decoys. And a stool to sit on. Only did this for 2 years and only for early teal, but the call and MOJO seemed to work very well. confused2

If you are where ducks want to be, you don't need a call...

And if you don't know how to call you will scare everything away! Get a pintail whistle. Easy to use & works for teal pins, etc.
