The basics of duck hunting are pretty simple to get you going as a waterfowl hunter and they are covered in a few easy steps for the beginner.
The basics of duck hunting are discussed and demonstrated in this straightforward introduction to one of the best types of hunting you can try.
Duck hunting can be gear heavy but as you can see from this video you don’t necessarily need a ton of equipment to start out. I take a lot of newer hunters out waterfowling and I always tell them that if they get into the sport they can start with just a few basics.
Waders, a good shotgun, 12 decoys and some camo are all you really need to get going in the sport of a lifetime. Once hooked you can build on the gear pile later as you hone your skills.
Start simply and hunt over some smaller water and you will start experiencing classic duck hunting by sticking to the basics; once you get deeper into it you can expand your hunting range and techniques.
