People always think they need the latest and greatest most powerful or gimmick load and you really don't. You will see that in all sides of waterfowl hunting. Some people think decoys need to quack, blink their eyes ad poop, others think they need the newest camo pattern and a $300 custom call. The list just keeps going. Don't fall into that way of thinking. I'm killing birds over 35 year old flembeau decoys with a .410 using steel or bismuth 6's and a 16 gauge with factory steel 4's, both are Rem 1100's, the 16 gauge is 46 years old. I'm using a $20 Haydels call and a $7 duck commander whistle wearing a mix of camo patterns. When I was still shooting a 12 gauge I was killing 200-300 birds per season using 2 3/4" Xperts with all of the same old gear.
