80 yard triples are easy for me when I use one of my grown up sp-10s;-)Amazing! Just think how far out you could drop a duck if you used a grown ups gun.
You'd be surprised how many cyber scouting, high shooting, guy's who think that no duck is out of their range actually do look at these forums. I do have good news for you though, I do talk to them in the field, give them pointers and every now and again do invite them to hunt with me.I think it's great you are taking the time out for these PSA's on how to hunt. My guess is most of these pesky sky busters aren't reading them here. May I suggest confronting them in the field or better yet. When you see a stupid **** sky buster. Invite them out with you and show them the Jedi way
Junior, it's always luck or location man. This was the first time I have ever seen a band on a duck before I shot it. I have seen a lot of the bands on the geese I kill before I shoot them but they are bigger, easier to spot and I happen to live and hunt where a ton of them are banded.I've shot maybe 2,000 ducks and 25 geese. I've got 1 single band. How do you guys do it?
I will let you know tonight, I am wasting to much time replying to this thread instead of submitting the info. I am going to bet delta, Utah and last year as a banding date. Just because most of the mallard bands killed here seem to end up coming from there.Any band info?
Jeff, this one is a Remington Wingmaster, the one I was using last year was a standard 870. My wife is using her Weatherby sa-08 here and there for ducks also.Very cool, congrats on the band! I am getting more and more interested in the 28 gauge, and its nice to see people shooting limits with it. What make and model of 28 do you shoot, if you don't mind me asking?
I was just thinking back on the bands that I have shot and they all seem to be on the left leg of the bird. Does anyone else have that same experience?
