    Duck hunting sucks

    I agree the thought of being in slough or on the river gets my heart racing. I have been skunked a few times but still go back and enjoy being out there on the water and setting up decoys and drinking coffee while the sun comes oh yeah anbd being so excited the first day that when they do come in to land the gun isn't loaded. it is good to be a duck hunter snow is coming and i cant wait nothing better than busting ice to put decoys out.
  4. here is a pic of todays hunt windy and just starting to snow 4:30 and the roosters showed. Bailey is 3 in march and has had a great year with retrieving ducks and finding those sneaky rooster. Heading out tomorrow for the last hunt of year cant wait

    super X2

    I love my sx2 it is the only shotgun I use. i shooot small trap loads and 3.5 at geese it is all around good gun it does get a little after a few miles of upland and the duratouch is peeling. but the mechanics have never failed. Great gun the only thing i would do different is by the camo instead of the black it is amazing how much the black stands out from a distance.
  6. I am a Transplnat from Iowa and The Area south of worthington and over by Spirit lake is always good lots of public land and sloughs. I have alwasys had good luck. i wont be down this weekend though i have to work next weekend for sure.

    Rochester area

    those are Always filled with geese and the two ponds out west of town near on the Isaac Walton Nature Area you cant see the water for the thickness of geese. I have been over to whitewater few time thrown a dozen floaters and shot a few mallards some woodies and seen a fair amount of geese. Good luck

    SX2

    This is my third year with my sx2 i love it cycles great and For the last two i have beat it up pretty good and looks new. I shoot 2 3/4 through it for trap and 3 1/2 through for goose and have no problem. I was trying to decide between that and Superblackeagle. Overall Great gun
