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


For it is not the quarry that we truly seek, but the adventure.

Shotgun: 11-87 LH Premier in Teflon black for bad weather days. Either A5 Magnum in Teflon black or SxS for non rain days.

Chokes: skeet for small ponds/opening weekend and a Terror .675 for big water/public/late season.

Shells: 3" 3s - moving away from these. (Meh...)
Original Hevisteel 4s. Running out of these slowly. (These are awesome)
Bismuth handloads of 4s when I shoot my Dad's A5.
Moving toward: handloads of HW13 6s.

Calls: RNT Shortbarrel with a reed that I tuned.
RNT Timber
Kellys Kalls (perfection, highly recommended)
Winglock short reed Goose Call

Jacket - Filson waterfowl in Advantage Wetlands

Decoys: A mixture of makes in 'not so much' mallard.
Or my own hand carved cork decoys.


Thought for the day: Ducks were almost hunted to extinction long before camo was invented.
