Just got around to patterning a box of Hevi X that I've had sitting on the shelf since last year. While my patterns were acceptable I cut a shell open to get a pellet count. These are 1 1/4 oz. #4's and I counted 238 pellets. This is remarkably close to #4 steel in pellet count for the same weight load. I'm going to cut a few more open to compare.

Lets say you find a spot in the in La/AR, you see mallards, teal, gaddies, pintails, wigeon etc. What species do you need in your spread to decoy any of those birds?

As this season winds down, what new gear is worth it, what gear is failing.....?

Finding that your bird is banded is one thing but when it is wearing a backpack it becomes a little special.

As I get older I find the little things in duck hunting a little more fun! It is no longer about numbers but memories!

I grew up shooting a 16ga Lefever given to me by my Dad. I then bought a Winchester 101 when I was on an R&R in Japan and have shot it ever since. What do you shoot, and why?
