Duck hunting is the most popular waterfowl sport out there, and if you’re heading out with the hope of bagging more than a few, try these tips for a more successful hunt. In-between fly-bys, take a moment to muddy the water by stomping through it or stirring it up with a stick or paddle – or, if you have an ATV, make use of it for some serious mud. Ducks flying overhead who see clear water below are less likely to stop than ducks who see muddy water. Also, consider adding motion to the water. Motion can be created using jerk strings, an electronic trolling motor, or even by moving your legs in the water, and keeps decoys moving a bit while also preventing the water from freezing.
Something else you need for a successful duck hunt is good quality ammunition. Federal created these Black Cloud shotgun rounds specifically to improve your waterfowl hunting experience. Steel shot is required in most areas due to the toxic properties of lead shot in water, but steel’s performance isn’t as powerful as lead’s. Black Cloud addresses that problem utilizing Federal’s special Flite Control wad to deliver nice, tight patterns and their Flite Stopper steel shot for a clean kill. These rounds are even effective at longer ranges when the average steel shot fails.
These are 12 gauge rounds with 1 ¼ ounce loads for superior power. Each shell is 2 ¾” long and filled with #2 steel shot, so it can be used in areas where lead shot is banned. These rounds burst from the barrel of your shotgun at a muzzle velocity of 1450 feet per second. Black Cloud shotgun shells are specifically made for waterfowl hunting; Federal manufactures ammunition at their plant in Anoka, Minnesota. You get 250 rounds in this single box of ammunition from Federal so you can spend some time honing accuracy and take the rest out hunting. Looking forward to duck hunting season? Order Black Cloud 12 gauge rounds and unleash your shotgun’s full hunting potential with steel shot.
