I hunt ducks.   Geese.   Pheasants.  Grouse.   Doves.  Hell if it flies it dies.  Best place for birds is on my plate wrapped in bacon.

I'll jump on this thread! I love sitting in the duck blind with the dog next to me! Didn't have a great year this winter, but we had fun.

Hevi Shot seems to be a good performer.   I heard lead is going to be OK'd again for hunting shot.

Hevishot is the best waterfowl load on the market.  I use both Hevimetal and Hevishot Duck
with outstanding results.  We had a good year in NE Arkansas despite the roller coaster
weather conditions we experienced.....

I would love to use some Hevi, it is just so darn expensive. I need to spend a lot more time at the range before I start forking over 2 to 3 bucks a trigger pull.

You shoot less shells with a shotgun shells like Hevishot due to the
hitting power and energy they impart.  Much cleaner kills with
very few if any cripples

When the golf game starts getting stale at the end of summer, good to look forward to early teal in September.  By the time snow geese are done in March, golf will be back soon. But if I lived in San Diego I'd probably never hunt again, just golf constantly!

I'm a big duck hunter here in Nebraska. I have shot Hevi metal, Hevi steel, Kent, Fiocchi and now use the new Cabela's Herters waterfowl brand of steel shot. Mainly due to rising costs but the Herters steel waterfowl load is top notch. You don't need Hevi Shot to knock down birds. I have killed many geese with #3 steel at passing distance. Maybe it's my Patternmaster choke :)

. The best goose hunter i know kills more birds dead with 2 3/4 inch steel. I shoot a 20 gauge winchester sx3 and kill more geese and ducks than the guys i hunt with that shoot 12's. How? Work harder at getting them closer and  pick your shots. The old boys did this best before the duck dynasty sky busters came along.

I hunt in canada (not the good provinces like alberta/sask) southern bc. Mostly local birds not much migrating birds so they seem extra educated. Limits are tough.

Found a steal 2 years ago on a benelli vinci and love it. My dads beretta a400 extreme is a dream though. I just moved to NC 3 months ago
