  • 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.
