Anything I'm Missing?

Postby nickbowen5 » Tue Oct 15, 2013 11:51 pm

Hello all,
I am new to this site and new to duck hunting. Thankfully I have an uncle that is taking me hunting this saturday and has helped in guiding me on what are needs/wants. I was just wondering if there is anything I am missing/might want to add. Decoys at this time won't be needed. No duck call also, as I am still learning, but I have one.

Gun- Benelli SuperNova 28" barrel (Black)

Waders- Cabela's 5MM neoprene waders (MAX-4)

Wading Jacket- Cabela's Dri-Fowl II 4-in-1 Wading Jacket (MAX-4)

Socks- Wool Socks from cabela's

Hat- Under Armour Hat (MAX-4)

Gloves- Under Armour Liner Gloves (MAX-4)

Shirt- Under Armour Charged cotton (MAX-4)

Bag- Cabela's Waterfowl Rucksack (MAX-4)

HeadLamp- Energizer

Hunter's License w/ California Duck Stamp, Federal Duck stamp, 1 year season pass

Planning on getting a 5 gallon bucket and painting it for a temporary seat

I was wondering what is cheap and a good for lower body clothing? Any recommendations on a waterfowl bird carrier? Anything I'm missing that might be essential?

Oh we will be hunting refuges btw.

Face paint/ face mask
TP
Flashlight
Knife
Coffee/tea/hot chocolate
Also something waterproof to put your license in, (ziplock bag or something along those lines)
Hearing protection depending on how many people you will be with. And since your not calling I would suggest it anyway.
How's my spelling WTN10

Welcome to duck hunting. The only thing u "need" is a gun, dekes, calls, shells, boots, warm camo. The list of wants is endless!!!

Also, don't get too tied up early with camo patterns and name brands. Staying still with working birds is more important than what flavor gear u have.

Id think khaki pants & boots are fine. Get a knit cap

Thanks for the advice! Yeah so far I'm not too tied up in camo pattern or name brand, but I like for it to at least match correctly. I went on this during opening day so I'm almost two weeks removed and think I have a clearer picture to what I will need next time out.

Camo is nice, but ive taken a " lazy day" were i just wore a pair of boots, jeans and a thin black jacket. Ducks dont care, just stay really still, and keep the barrel out of the sky till its time to shoot, :thumbsup:
