You don't need a 12ga beneli, berreta, browning, or winchester auto with a black or camo paint job to hunt ducks with. While a used wood bolt action 12ga at under a $150 will do. You don't need the last and greatest camo or for that matter any of the blend camos to hunt duck esp. in TX which I always think of as being hot. A long sleeved khaki shirt will do, if cold a earth tone work coat will be fine. You don't need expensive decoys while $30/12 hot buys will work for water or field use. Or you could make your own wood, cork, or canvas decoys floatin decoys. Or some silhouettes from campaign signs. You can't get around the price of gas, well you could always go to electric. For the amount of shooting most duck hunters do reloading is not practicle but straight steel shot is inexpensive. Waders are also pretty much unadvoidable unless you can walk on water. Lastly you do not need choke tubes, calls , or mojos to hunt ducks. Welcome to the world of waterfowling also don't fall off the boat the water tends to be cold in winter.
