Even during the offseason you can still get in some practice and hone your skills when it comes to duck hunting, giving you an edge when things start up again. At Pluck a Duck, we want to ensure you have the best duck hunting experience possible, and that typically involves actually hitting your targets. Take advantage of the following tips to help you prepare for the next season.
One of the most important things you should do during downtime is to make sure that your shotgun fits you. An ideal shotgun should naturally fit into your shoulder, allowing you to see down the barrel easily. If the gun you’re using doesn’t fit your body, you may need to either get a different gun or have your current gun adjusted by a professional.
Making sure you have the right gun is just one part of the equation. Being able to shoot it and hit a target is another. Even if you can’t go out and shoot ducks right now, that doesn’t mean you can’t get into practice. Shooting clays is a great way to mimic the experience of shooting a moving target like a duck.
Having the right gear is also important, so take some time to upgrade some of the hunting equipment you currently use, and maybe buy a few things you’ve gone without. From traps to the proper clothes, there are a variety of tools hunters need to get the job done right.
These are just a few tips to keep in mind during the offseason so you can come back and hunt ducks like never before.
