Forgotten Routines

When it comes to waterfowl hunting most people forget the routines that you would go through for deer hunting or turkey hunting. Shotgun pattern's!!!! This is one of the most over looked thing when it comes to goose or duck hunting. Just like turkey hunting, you didn't come this far to cripple a bird or flat out miss. With all of the new steel shot loads on the market there are so many choices for shot, lengths and velocities.

When patterning don't shy away from changing out choke's or loads, for instance the combination of a Modified choke with #2 shot is a very popular combo. Personally I like to shoot a Modified choke with BB shot in 3", the possibilities are ENDLESS!!! Just take the time before season and make sure that your ready to go! Shoot Straight!

Youth Waterfowl Weekend

Its just around the corner, as a matter of fact this weekend! Hope to get out with my good friend Dave Hagen and maybe Chico if we can pry him out of the treestand. The total party will be Dave, Mike Sr., my brother Jake and myself. Hope to get some ducks and have a good time on the water, the best part is that we get first crack at the ducks before the adults do! Video and pictures will follow after the hunt
