Hunter Dan just dropped in to check and make sure things in here are OK and saw this free for all. First off welcome to the site and if you are looking for some help you are in the right place. May I suggest that you look/read through some of the topics in the other forums in here and as for the not being able to hit and kill/harvest ducks, well we all miss shots and we all had to learn. The most important thing to remember is to let the birds get as close as possible and then to swing your gun through the birds flight from behind to a point several feet(2-8 depending on distance, speed of bird, etc...) ahead of its beak and fire still moving the gun along the birds flight path. I hope this helps. Good luck and Good Hunting.
