What is the best shot size for ducks and geese?
3-inch #4 for Ducks, 3-inch #2 for Geese, and 3-inch BB for Sandhill Cranes – Three-inch shells are most common, although 3½-inch shells hold the most shot, but also generate more recoil for the hunter. Both of the larger loads deliver the best patterns when fired from a 12-gauge or 10-gauge. We find 3½-inch do not perform well for geese or cranes.
What choke should use?
Modified would be the most versatile choke.
How many boxes of shells will I need for my 3-day hunt?
All depends on your ability, but we suggest one box per hunt. 5 boxes for our 3-day hunt and 7 boxes for our 4-day hunt.
