The Right Duck Hunting Gear

Aug 18, 2007
Whilst duck and other waterbird populations may change and a hunter's success will vary, duck hunting gear on the other hand just keeps improving. These improvements include everything from ammunition, clothing, blinds, dog training methods, decoys, and other hunting gear.

Many hunters believe that modern duck hunting shells and ammunition available today are far better than the lead shot from years ago. Many of the major improvements include higher velocity loads proving greater shooting distance and non-toxic shot making the consumption of the bird more palatable. With this improved equipment, hunters can bag ducks from further away and have far more choices available in ammunition.

Camouflage hunting wear have certainly improved duck hunting success. Todays garments are made from extremely lightweight, waterproof materials that keep you comfortable and dry far longer. New hunting jackets are wind proof, keep the hunter warm, are lightweight and give the duck hunter's freedom of movement.

They make duck boats much more advanced and specialized today than the boats from years ago. Duck boats are an important part of the necessary duck hunting gear used for navigating lakes, cattail sloughs, swamps, big rivers, and streams. Manufacturers of watercraft realized the importance of boats for waterfowl hunters and today, almost every major boat manufacturer got on the bandwagon and now produces waterfowl / duck boats. There are Jon boats for duck hunters that come in many different lengths, models, a big selection of camouflage paint colors, and have accessories available such as a built in fuel tank, grab rails, gun storage boxes, lights, bilge pumps, center or side console steering, ice chests, and bench seats. Some boats even have lockable dry storage and shelving for storing decoys, shotguns, and many other duck hunting gear items.

Both land and boat duck blinds today have undergone huge design changes with better designs, materials, and superior construction. When it comes to the right gear, the new duck blinds are easy to install, portable, compact, affordable, lightweight, and hide hunters efficiently. The boat blinds are made of rugged nylon fabric, with sturdy frames, and easy to setup, attach, and take down.

Duck boat motors have also undergone a variety of important changes over the years. Surface drive model mud motors move both larger and small duck boats across water-related obstacles such as logs, sand, mud, swamps, weeds, and other things that would bog down or destroy the old water-cooled, conventional outboard engines from years ago. Compared to years ago, todays modern equipment certainly makes hunting easier and far safer for duck and waterfowl hunters. Hunters are now comfortable while they enjoy their favorite outdoor activity.
