A good morning with the 20 ga.

I hoped to have a little more green in the picture but my aging eyes sometimes make that difficult...

After shooting my 12 for the last few weeks the 20 was a nice break..............

And people say 20's dont work on ducks...

Whats with that second bird from the right? is it just my phone or is it a drake mallard body with an orange bill?
Why do I shoot 3.5" for geese? Because they don't make a 4" yet!

It's an immature drake. The top side of the bill was greenish and he only had a little color on his head.

who says 20 gauges dont kill birds & why all the hens...not just of the mallard variety. If you're gonna spend the time to field hunt you can wait for green or drakes of other species

Well done sir! For the last four years the only gun I carry for ducks is a o/u 20 and have never looked back. MY hunting buddy even switched to a 20 for ducks. If you do your part and keep the shots in the 20's range there not a duck it wont take.

The man said he was old, chitt. Just because someone hunts in a field doesn't mean they are covered in birds.

Looks like a fine hunt to me :thumbsup: I have been thinking about switching to 16ga when I hunt tight portholes and timber just to be different and keep people out of my shell bag. Lol

I always use my 20 in the timber for the woodies. The shots are all within 15 or 20 yards. It's cheaper and does not mess up the birds to bad. Just have to aim good. :smile:
