I would search the classifieds of newspapers in your area. Look for garage sales, auctions and personal listings of sporting goods. I look at the classifieds for every Saturday. There is always an auction or sale going on some place. I try to go to them when I can.

By the time you pay for shipping on ebay you're not really coming out that great. With that being said, you can find some goods deals in the off season. Just be picky with what you want and what you are willing to spend.

If money is tight I would suggest not getting caught up in buy to much gear before you try it for yourself. If you can come up with some clothes that will keep you warm (your existing parka, snow gloves,etc..) what ever you normally wear in the cold will work for a beginning season, as long as they are not a flouresant color that stands out a mile away.

In my opinion I would spend my money on blind material, and possibly some used or new decoys. If you can obtain a few decoys, they will grab the ducks attention, and as long as you are hidden in a blind whether homemade or commercially produced. You should still get some shooting in. At least enough to get you addicted to the sport. :getdown: After that I would slowly start taking notice of what you feel you need (better coat, more decoys, better blind, etc....). Don't get caught up in thinking you have to have everything to start.
