    Well guys, I will be duck hunting for the first time saturday morning. Ive been a pheasant hunter for about 5 years now. I know I need to put the duck plug back into my gun restricting it to 3 shells. I have all the licenses I need and I dug all the Camo I could find out of my paintball gun arsenal. Its all either Mossy Oak or Advantage Timber. Acording to my buddys that will be fine.

    Im looking for any advice you can give me.

    Gun: Winchester 1300 Speed Pump 12 gauge
    Shells: Winchester 3 inch 1 shot 1 1/4 oz i think they are.
    I have a belt which hold 25 shells for quick loading

    whats this only three shells crap? i thought the point of hunting was to kill something, and in water foul, kill as many as you can... 3 shells... thats DUMB!

    oh, good luck. as you can tell, i dont hunt anything. much easier to go to the supermarket and buy chicken or cow or pig.. then cook. hell, its even on the way home from work... lol

    Go with someone experienced your first time and make sure you can ID 'em very well before you ever fire a shot. Males are easy to distinguish species, females, not so much.

    Don't worry about the camo pattern, it really doesn't matter. As for the belt for speed loading, don't really worry about that either. I've always thought the Winchester 1300 was a pretty good buy for a beginners gun. Shoot at their heads, it helps a lot, especially on crossing shots. But you shoot pheasants, so you probably know that. Don't be shy about shooting them off the water, they taste the same as the ones you shoot out of the air.

    Nice!

    Same thing an old timer told me about quail, "You wanna eat, shoot 'em on the ground, you wanna hunt, shoot em in the air."

    I like to eat

    Wait for the ducks to land before shooting, it is much easier that way.:rolleyes:
