Don't know about that but it took me 20 years to find a good deal! If you're in my neighborhood anytime soon, at least you'll know why I'll only be eating beans for a while.... smile

I shoot 3/4 oz of ITX 6's out of my light 16ga and 7/8 oz out of my 12. A 3/4 oz of 5 or 6 bismuth would work great. The real trick to killing waterfowl is wait until they are in lethal range of the load your using. Sometimes you have to pass on a few birds that are marginal shots.

That is a great shotgun to take some woodies with enjoy your duck dinner.

7/8 oz ITX 6's(bismuth works just as well)

After the first shot the rest are just noise.

Those are awful small Canada geese. Aleutian by chance?

16 ducks between 6-8 guys, sounds like a decent morning and not overly excessive. What does seem excessive is your ignorance Ed.

Thank you, Ed. I'm sure you know the limit, how many hunters we had that morning, and how many ducks are in the area. How many per person do you think is reasonable?

I count 17 birds in the photo. Assuming 6 hunters as Spring said and a 6 duck per hunter limit, that is less than half of the number of birds legally allowed (not taking into account any sublimits which are in effect some places ie. 6 ducks per day, no more than 4 of which can be Wood ducks or whatever). In any event, it’s not excessive at all and just looks like a heck of a good time!

The last thing I'd line up to do is to justify myself to a guy like Ed, but as you'll see from that day, our duck total was well under the limit. We carefully manage our harvest so that we can hunt the pond throughout the season. It's a lot of fun , especially when we have father/son combinations, as was the case again in this pic. It's special to introduce the next generation to good times in the outdoors.

You can also probably guess which of the two dogs did most of the work.... smile
