Gear for hunting

Postby bpsdiveraddict » Sun Apr 13, 2014 7:45 pm

I want to get into field hunting, targeting mostly ducks. What would be somethings to buy (decoys, mojos, blind) etc and how many. Thanks, also scouting tips would be very appreciated.

layout blind (whichever one works for you ), full body decoys ( 3 or 4 doz should be a good start) or some shells (cheaper than fb's but don't look as good ) . spinning wing decoys help to bring attention to your decoys in the field, if they don't STICK out .

Some Canada geese full bodys or higdon wobbler shells are nice and cheaper.




Scouting tips , same as always . Find where they are eating and hunt it

Why do I shoot 3.5" shells for ducks and geese ? Because they don't make 4" yet

1-2 dozen Canadas and a mojo or two and you will be able to shoot plenty of ducks in feilds. If you wanna add more, add more geese and maybe a dozen fb mallards

A good layout that has been muddled with low profile. Canadian full bodies or shells on motion steaks a couple dozen mallard shells with some spinning wing decoys and you should be set. I take a battery drill with me to male holess for my motion steaks once the ground has frozen. As for scouting I would start close to a roost or loafing area but not hunt the roost and just find wherected they are feeding and try to be on the x.
