Hard-hitting ammo a must

When it comes to hunting coastal waterfowl, whether in the agricultural rice fields or the National Wildlife Refuge system, a hard-hitting shotgun shell is of utmost importance, particularly where geese are in the mix.

One of the best rounds on the market for shooting waterfowl over decoys is Winchester’s Blind Side ammunition.

The ammunition’s Hex Steel Shot packs neatly into a two-piece shot cup. The rounds spread quickly and pattern well at the 35- to 40-yard range, making them perfect for ducks and geese over decoys.

On my Southwestern Lacassine and Lacassane hunts, I shot No. 1s for geese and No. 5s and 6s for ducks, both with excellent results.
