OK, got me a 12 gauge with modified and IC chokes, 4 boxes of #2 steel shot, a set of Magellen waders 1.5 sizes too big, and a duck stamp today. First time hunt is the 29th-guided, so anything else I need to think about getting?

Waders should be fine just wear thick socks, I always try on before I buy lol as far as what goes in pack like said above
headlamp, shells, dry rag, I keep an extra dry t shirt just incase, snacks, knife, and some water.

They usually say get bigger for wader boots so your stocking waders can fit inside. Are you using boot foot or stocking foot? I like boot foot for duck hunting and stocking foot for fishing. You'll be fine, I just brought it up so you could check them before using them. Boot foot should be fairly snug so they don't pull off in the mud.

What and where are u hunting for? Geese and cranes?
U might not need waders. Waders are a pain to stake 300 rags down

Amo, calls,facemask,light gloves,water, tp in a ziplock, 2-3 ziplocks, a couple of trashbags, Lisence, power-bar and handwarmers to throw in boots if colder than 20 F

several items will depend on you. I have buds who cannot leave house/camp without getting something in their tummy. I personally can go till noon with nothing but coffee...gotta have the black jo!...with cream laugh So snacks/drinks are up to you. When I go alone I have...shells, headlamp, hand warmers, face paint (I hate a mask), calls, spare batteries for headlamp, lanyard, tree strap, camo gloves, ball cap/beanie, jerk cord. In my wader chest pouch I keep a small compass, small streamlight flashlight and my case for my phone. They always stay in my wader pouch. As far as TP....my body does not control me...I control it...I go when I get home! I personally carry a walking stick as I have no dog and must retrieve my own ducks. This is for water hunting. I like to stand but there are times I will take my marsh seat. Clothing...whatever the current temps are depends on weather I take neck gaiter, rain jacket etc. Gun/decoys are obvious. Some items depends if I'm boating in or walking in. I rarely walk in today but still do occasionally. One thing I do not have when DUCK hunting is a knife... loco But then I always have one on me at all other times. I have a knife when scouting though and one in the boat but never on me when hunting. Go figure.

Good luck. BTW why are you waiting until the last day of the year to go duck hunting?

Well at least you will have ALL year to spend way too much money on hunting stuff!

I suspect you will have a boat, trained dog and most stuff than a small sporting goods store come November 2017. You will be hooked! hammer

Have fun and dont forget to tip the guide.
