When you’re out duck hunting there are a few tricks you can employ to convince ducks flying overhead to come in for a landing. Decoys are great, and it helps if you mix things up. Use sleepers to convince ducks an area is safe; when ducks have been shot at all season long – or if they’re older and have escaped more than their share of hunters – they’re likely to be hesitant to land. But if they see sleepers, it adds realism to the scene you’re trying to create. If you can add some to logs near the water it’s an even better touch, and with the help of a cordless drill you can pop the decoy stakes right into the log. A nice mixture of standers, floaters, and sleepers gives an area just the right look to convince ducks flying overhead it’s a good idea to come down.
These 12 gauge shells have a 1 ¼ ounce load, so they pack a serious punch. 1 ¼ ounces is enough power to propel shot towards your target with significant force. These shells are full of #2 steel shot which is a great size for ducks and other waterfowl. Each shell is 2 ¾” long and leaves the barrel of your shotgun at the tremendous muzzle velocity of 1450 feet per second. These are Federal’s Black Cloud rounds utilizing Federal’s unique Flite Control wad for a tight pattern and their Flite Stopper steel pellets to bring ducks down hard. When it comes to hunting waterfowl, Black Cloud brings a whole new level of power to steel shot.
