Waterfowl is expensive starting out. I'd definetly get some good waders, a mojo mallard, a dozen duck floaters will get u started.

I'd get some good waders, a good call, and some duck floaters.

Get waders, half a dozen decoys, steel shot, camo clothes and go to Goose Pond next season. Its a great place to hunt, and the guys in the office will help you find some places to go. Get over there and watch the birds, see where they like to be. If you go now, there should still be lots of ducks there to watch and listen to. You need to learn to recognize the different species, get a book that helps you tell a teal from a shoveller etc...Besides bird watching is lots of fun. Calling them is fun too. Over the summer get a call and practise a lot (it helps to get a tape or dvd). The easiest to "master" is a teal whistle. If you don't know anyone who hunts ducks now, I guarantee that next season you will. There's usually some solo hunters who will pair up with you for the draws in the morning (drawing for blinds). See ya in September!
