    My son in law took me duck hunting this past season. I've been hunting for 35 years (deer, turkey, dove, small game) but this was my first real duck hunt. I am officially addicted now. I'm already researching places to go along the Mississippi flyway next winter. New shotgun is on the way, and looking forward to next season!

    Welcome to the Refuge! It's definitely a fun hunt and it's great that you get to do it with family.

    What shotgun did you get?

    I've always had good service and good luck with my remington shotguns, so I ordered a Versa Max Waterfowl Pro. I looked at all the options, and just couldn't make myself buy an import. I wanted something nice, and I wanted it to be as American as I could find. By next season, it will have proven itself with many many sporting clays, dove shoots, and pattern testing before I take it on a duck hunt.

    Nothing like hunting with your kids...nothing. Glad to have you.
