Can someone tell me the pros and cons of a 26 inch barrel and a 28 inch barrel. Thinking of getting a new shotgun and cant decide which length barrel to get. thanks craig
Well I really dont think it matters, it might help if you are have a kid and need a shorter barrel. What really matters is the choke and not the barrel length.

I killed a mess of ringnecks the past few weeks. Heard they were a little gamey. Anybody have a recipe or any advice? Thanks!

I would like to get some feedback on surface drive motors being that they have been around for a few seasons now. I find it puzzling how you see a good bit come up for sale and most are fairly new. Are poeple buying them, not liking em and selling? We have been running go-devils for ever now…

Good evening all,

Hi all, Im at it hard again for another louisiana duck season. Today we did very well and after retrieving a drake gadwall I noticed this bird had a complete black and white ring around his neck. I know I've seen this somewhere but cant locate any info on it. Whether its rare, or what causes this.…

We had a decent duck season this past year in several of our ponds. Mostly wood ducks but made for some fun shooting and allowed us a break between deer hunting. Ducks peaked out in our area around Christmas then slowed way down after that. We had a few teal, greys, and a mallard or two show up in…

De Nuck and Futz Duo concluded Regular Duck Season 21/22 with a hunt that we almost called off,based upon the ridiculously low-water conditions we encountered and it was not a surprise,given the strong NNW and NW winds we got dished out the last few days of this duck season.What is a valid concern…

The only chance I’ve had to pick up a gun this year was to pepper a beaver behind the house the other night. I do need to get out in the woods and change up my scenery!

Nice day for a duck hunt compared to today. Water was high enough for us to get where we needed to get as we have been watching where the ducks want to be. This time of year it's not what you think ought to happen rather scouting where the ducks are and going…

While I sit at work, bored out of my mind, I figured I would begin to solve the worlds problems. Lets begin with the reject of the waterfowl community, the pooldo (yes, its probably misspelled). How do pooldo migrate south for the winter. If any of you have seen these birds fly, you probably…

Before you disrespect the pouldeau, you better try them. What! I can just taste the pouldeau and oyster gumbo already. If you don't want them, let them go. I will be there to get them. Running them up...ughhhh.....I mean calling them in. Ha ha ha.

Weather conditions were ideal for our duck hunt Friday after Thanksgiving. North wind about 15 steady with overcast skies, perfect. We had good amounts of teal and big ducks on the move right from the beginning of the hunt. We had been doing well in this spot so we had all of us in one blind…

I had one bad morning on my way out to hunt. I put my 15 flatboat in reverse and I began to quickly take on water. Thanks To Christian Orfanello and Seatow I got out safely . Also, congrats to him and his new bride. Seatow is just $179 a year and its worth having out on the water when…

Bad conditions for a duck hunt today. No wind at all and blue bird skies. We got in before 6:00 am hoping the teal would be on the move again but today they seemed to stay put. There were times some nice bands of teal were zigging and zagging across the marsh…

I have stated many times the duck game is location, location, location. Over the last several years the ducks don’t seem to want to be in an area we had success for many years. The habitat has changed and we were able to lease new property in an area the ducks, teal for the most part want to…
