  • I am currently in the Marine Corps and will be getting out next winter. I live in central Wisconsin and am an avid upland bird h

    I am currently in the Marine Corps and will be getting out next winter. I live in central Wisconsin and am an avid upland bird hunter, but I'm very interested in duck hunting, but I'm not sure of what gear I need to start off on the right foot. Over the next year I would like to start accumulating the "basic" duck hunting gear so once I get out I will be able to start duck hunting properly. I won't be able to purchase very much of the gear at stores because of were I live so most of my purchases will be online. Any suggestions on what kind of gear I should purchase and where would be greatly appreciated. Also I'm trying to establish a budget of 500 dollars, will that be enough to get me started?

MALLARD DECOYS,3 TO 6 FLOATING GOOSE DECOYS AND A GOOD PAIR OF WADERS.ALSO GET A WATERPROOF CAMO COAT WITH REMOVABLE LINER. TRY FINDING A USED CANOE IT WILL GET YOU AROUND MOST PLACES. A GOOD PLACE TO START HUNTING IS MEAD WILDLIFE AREA.ALSO MANY GOOD SPOTS ON WIS. RIVER.IF YOU KNOW ANYONE IN CRANBERRY INDUSTRY SEE IF YOU CAN GET ACCESS TO ONE OF THE MARSHES, BEST HUNTING IN AREA. GOOD LUCK AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE.
