Just started duck hunting. I use a Winchester 1300 right now, but i know camo is important for duck hunting. Am i gonna scare em away without a camo gun? Also what do you think of using camo tape. I know there are some brands that arent supposed to leave residue on your gun but do they work?

I don't have a camo gun, and they still come in. I don't think they can really see the gun if you lay it down by your side.

Dont worry about not having a camo gun....I hunted for 5 years without one and have not really notice a problem. If your hunting from a duck blind and you can set the gun down.....then it does not matter if it is pink.
My wife bought me a Benelli SBE 2 for christmas today that is in Max-4. Its great but as long as your still.....I dont think it matters.
There are alot of products made to hook hunters into thinking they will have an advantage.....Camo is nice but dont loose sleep or the extra cash it takes to buy one....In my opinion.
With the money you save can be put towards a case of shells.

I have waterfowled for about 11 years and the camo gun is not needed for any hunting except maybe Turkey.
When in concealment of a blind or on the ground it should be close to you and the only time the ducks will see it is when you TAKE EM!!!!

Shot ducks for 5 years with an 870 wingmaster. Didn't bother the birds and it has that glossy blued finish. Well, it did have that finish until I took it out in the rain one day when I was young and stupid. I tried reblueing it myself, and it helped. I recommend a Camo gun for turkeys, ducks I don't see the need. I got a camo finish on my xtrema to retard rusting.

Dont really need it. As long as you dont use something nickel plated :mrgreen:
Everyone must believe in something and I believe I'll go hunting. When men bond something must die.
