Your Favorite "Goose" "Duck" Shot.. Feedback..

Postby DRHunter » Thu Mar 11, 2010 4:08 pm

Guys,

I have ran into many guys around here at the Sportshops buying BBB, T Shot for geese. I wanted to post this just to see how many people think this is neccessary. After hunting for many years and filling many bags I have only used BB or 2 shot for geese and most of the time only using 4 shot for ducks. Just had a friend head to Dicks and he had to have a all out debate with the guy on buying a bunch of #2 shot and BB for snow hunting. Can not wait to hear your guys comments. My best advice is stick with #2 and BB and #4's cheap Xpert and buy yourself a EX Choke. "Gives you a budget to buy twice the amount of shells for the year" lol... Have no problems taking ducks at a unreal long range.



Have a great day and good huntin!

DR
Good Day and Good Huntin to You!

I shoot 4's early in the season and then move to 2's when the bigger ducks get here. 2's or bb's for geese. Depends on how close you get them!

I shoot BB or BBB for duck and geese. Because when I'm goose hunting I like to be able to shoot both ducks and geese, so I don't get caught with geese in my face but only duck loads in my gun.....

Federal BB for geese, Federal #3 for ducks...the pattern was a lot better out of my gun @ 30 yards than with the 2's I used for a long time.
