    And , some successful hunters call it a day in the marsh with a good dog ! BUT remember , some hunters 60 yds are only 40 !!

    With a crossing shot past 35 yds being a LOW success shot for the average Waterfowler , the amount of shooting in the marsh , does make it a joking matter !
    Less than half of the hunters tested hit 50% of the targets at 30 yds or more with steel shot loads and when they were asked to estimate the distance , most
    were wrong ! On the ground it's relatively simple , in the air , it's any man's guess !

    You don't. If you're hunting in 50mph winds, you are looking for a safe, quick way off the water.

    A bird bucking the wind is affected by the wind just like your pattern would be so depending on the distance of the shot , it will take a normal lead , upwind !
    You would be better off allowing the bird to get past you , then , it would take the same lead as if it was coming towards you ! Error on the upwind side , is my
    motto ! :yes:l:l
