Late season, shooting the BOSS 5s. A bit overkill with birds feet down in the blocks at 25yds, but hits em hard and makes em dead.

5 shot? Iíve been wondering about those boss shells and what size for a 12. I use to shoot 2 shot steel. Crushed a goose with 3 shot Hevi metal though out at good distance. Wondering if I should go smaller in size for ducks now.

Always a compromise, but pattern density is very important. That size shot is a legit killer to 40yds.

Took us a bit of effort and a tank of gas but we got into the mallards today pretty good.  11 in 45 minutes after we found them. Should have limited but wanted to let them stack back in for tomorrows hunt and it was damn cold for the pup so we got out of there early this afternoon. Be careful with your dogs in this weather.

Had some snows flying by our place today, donít normally see them these far up river. Probably due to the fields down river being frozen over.

Froze out before they got to my spots. Still very low water lines as well, decoys still in storage.
Don't read my post if facts hurt your feeling.
