    I wasn't told until later, after I got my Wards Western Field 20 gage pump at age 16.

    First duck I ever shot at was a drake bufflehead. Got him in one shot. Still have the shell and tail feathers. Second duck I ever shot at and with this gun was a banded hen mallard. Still have the band. Third shot with this gun at a duck was a drake Wood duck. I hit it but my dad finished it.

    First duck my wife ever shot was with this gun too, a hen mallard.

    My brother has the same gun but in a full size version. He shot a couple pheasants with it but never a duck.

    I refinished the stocks and fore arms of each gun so they match.

    My dad put my name in a DU banquet greenwing drawing when I was 4 years old (1986). I won a Winchester model 120 youth 20 gauge pump. the DU "whistler" edition.
