I got 1 GWT. Saw mostly teal in fact. Very few big ducks around this morning.

Should have killed 2 or 3 GWT and a shoveler, but thats where my review of winchester blindside comes in.

It may work fine for big ducks, but I didnt find it to be worth a crap today on teal or shovelers. 30-35 yd shots. I crippled the 1 teal that was with the shoveler, had to run it down in the boat.

Later in the morning 2 other teal came in, and I hit one 2x, knocked it down but not dead. It flew off when I was getting in the boat to chase it down. I was not real happy at this point.

I changed over to some Estates I had in the bag, but I didnt get another opportunity, except on the buffleheads that were in my decoys all morning. I dont shoot those much b/c i"m not fond of eating them. They were fun to watch, and very vocal for some reason. Of course, having live decoys is always a plus.

Dont know if I will be shooting the Blindside again. Apparently the "real" pattern doesnt match up with the paper one I got last year.

Got invited to Missouri at the last minute last nite. they killed 54 there thursday so went hoping to wear them out. Ended up with 4.

Still trying to get this new stoeger broke in. I pulled up on a green head and it went click. which was my fault because i let the slide down easy when i loaded my gun.

Another time my gun jammed after first shot but still smoked the teal. Another guy hunting with us says his stoeger did the same thing until he put a bunch of rounds thru it. I oiled the slide and inside up while in the blind and messed with the action quite a bit but never shot anything after to see if it jammed again. Im sure it will be fine just needs broke in.

To break that stoeger in i shot a box of Turkey shells threw it and i shoot dove end all of that with the smaller loads and it works out standing. Shoot a box or two of turkey shot through it and you should be good.

Killed 19 on public land. Mostly divers. Worked a good amount of Mallards, but had some sky boasters hunting about 100 yards away from us.
