Shot Size Question

Postby trap333 » Fri Jan 12, 2018 8:46 pm

As I've said in a few previous posts I'm new to waterfowl hunting. My next question is this. With money being a little tight, is there a shot size and load that can be used for both ducks and Canada geese? I can't afford 3 or 4 different loads for different situations. Any advice would be appreciated, thanks.

A lot of guys use #2 shot for both with good results provided you are getting the geese in close. I have brought Canada's down with #3 shot but it's not my preferred shot size at all. You can buy a case of shot for under 100.00 dollars with free shipping form Rogers or Reed's usually before the season starts. :thumbsup:

If you shop at farm stores like BIG R or Rural King...Farm and Fleet you'll find that they have steel marked down in June or July. If you're on a budget just pick the 2.75" version. Usually around ten bucks a box.
I've heard that it's incredibly stupid to **** around with a crazy man's head.
