You should be fine, just remember the coot decoys and blow a goose call.....alot. Dont bother working the birds in close, no one else does either. Be sure to say hey to the guys/gals going into the impoundment.

Ok thanks for the info. I think I'll pick up some 3.5 inch black cloud. The duck commander shoots them and he makes it rain from way up high. I think I should be able to shoot the ducks before they get inside the impoundments.

duck commander shoots 3"- #3's, you can't miss them, they have his picture on the box. get a blackcloud choke tube, IC and you will be a deadly force

Its way better to shoot 3.5" shells with a XXXXfull choke. And forget sitting in the impound even if you have a draw. If you set up on the edge you can kill all the birds long before all the idiots who actually sit inside the impound! :thumbsup:

Speaking of mallards, I heard union point in New Bern was a good place to hunt for them. The guy that told me suggested that I wear my running shoes if I decided to hunt there. I've never duck hunted in tennis shoes before, why would I want to do that? Won't my feet get wet?

Thats what I call a "tennis shoe hunt". I knew several guys who used to raise and release tamie mallards and shoot them in their tennis shoes before work. Real sportsmen! :no:

Just get some old school reebok pumps, then if you start to sink you can just pump them up for more bouyancy.

I love this forum! If I get back to NC I am going to bring my Sears Gamefisher plastic boat and try out them impoundments where they have pin tales.

Actually just read book that has chapter on big time community wide Loon hunts that went on in NC every year on outer banks. They ate them and sold the wing bones for fishing lures.

Don't forget the face paint!
