Had a quick walk the other day and got a couple of Mallards from a slough. Also picked up a snipe which is a rarity for me. After taking the pic I shot two more greenheads, but was in too much of a hurry, (late for work), to get another photo. 5 shots for 5 birds, not a bad day.

Late for work?

Why ruin a great day of hunting!

Great hunt, and I like the pictures!

Went out today to the usual spot and came back with a limit of mallards. I got 7 birds with 8 shots, not a bad day. That nice shot is potent medicine.

What loads were you using on the ducks?

Remmie hulls, 7/8oz #5 nice shot, 23.5gr PB, Rem 209, CB1100-12. Around 8000psi with 1300fps.

I use 7625 in warmer weather, and switch to PB for the cold. The extra price is nothing for the couple of boxes I use each year.

There isn't any recoil to speak of, I'm getting complete pass-through on the big ducks, and absolutely pasting them at 50 yards.

I only had one of the 7 fall alive, ergo the eighth shot, (swatter).

I'm taking my elsie for a walk tomorrow to see if the ducks are ready for another dance.

Rob.

I went out again today with the Nice shot. Elsie loves Nice Shot, the geese not so much!

F&F, is that a pre-13 Elsie? If it is, and I know you, it probably has been acraglassed.

Yes that is a 1910 OO with full, x-full chokes and 30" barrels. It has been acraglassed. I haven't been taking many pictures this year, but I have been shooting quite a bit with the old gal. I went out last week with two friends using the latest autoloaders shooting 3.5" magnum loads. I definitely outshot them with my anemic loads and old gun. At the start they made fun of my filson coat and ancient gun with 2-3/4" shells. At the end of the hunt they were asking about where to get a SxS and how I handloaded the tungsten.

Fishnfowler, you're making me want to move to Washington! I have a friend whose son-in-law is in spokane. We hunted there last year for a week and I absolutely loved the area. What part of the state are you in?

Also with those tight chokes on that Elsie what kind of patterns are you getting at say 20-25 yards? The reason I'm asking is because I'm now using my old model12 heavy duck 12ga, 30"bbl, with a tight full choke and some bismuth and tungsten matrix loads, but am considering getting back into reloading for my 16 ga, model 12 with a 2,9/16th" chamber and nice shot looks like the way to go. My heavy duck throws a fairly tight pattern which is too tight for those close in shots on ducks. You may have covered this in other posts, I'll do a search when I get home and check, but any info is appreciated, Thanks, Bob.

Those are beautiful pictures, it might not be heaven but you can probably see it from there. :)I'm shooting Nice Shot #5's too (about 1 1/16 oz) and they are just devastating on the ducks and geese. I shot a shoveler at about 50 yds (it was the 2nd bird on a double) and dropped it without a flop. I certainly don't intentionally try my luck that far out but it was a heat of the moment thing.
Beautiful Elsie, Chessie, and scenery. You are certainly blessed!
