    Next year gonna hit the east coast and knock off
    Eiders, black ducks, and c'mon scoters.

    Jan 2017 going after king eiders.

    One thing I quickly learned is that you have to take good shots. It didn't take long to learn to shoot for the head. Several hunts I went 6/6.

    I missed my cinnamon teal earlier due to breaking rule # 1.

    What type of shot are you using in your .410 reloads?? I break .410 out every year and pass around pit to let everyone try their hand on some geese with heavy-shot #4s, not cheap rnds. Shell in 3rd pic up from bottom looks like a Winchester hull. Not very much on market to choose from without reloading yourself.;)

    Which rail? You don't have to go to far to add purple gallinule either.

    Think you can do it in only 2 years? :flame
