Re: need help quick

You should have no problem with lead 6s on either teal or mallards, provided you're not trying to knock them out of the air at 60 + yards. Used to do it all the time before we went to steel here, thats going back a ways.

I thought lead was illegal to use on waterfowl...? Are the laws/rules different where you live? In Oklahoma (and everywhere else I have lived for the past 20 years or so), we have had to use non-toxic shot.

6 shot lead should work fine for smaller ducks. 4 shot should work great for larger ducks and 2 shot should work great for geese.

Sorry, but I missed the part about living in the country Turkey. Yes, what they said. In fact, I used to kill snow geese with #6 lead when it was legal in this country.

I lived in Turkey for a total of three years (was in US Air Force)...82-83, and 86-88. When I was stationed there, we used to hunt ducks at night. It was scary at first, but got used to it. I don't really know if it was legal, however the local nationals took me out all the time. Unless things have changed since then, their game and fish laws and limits are real liberal. I really enjoyed my time over there, though. Great people!

Hope you have a successful waterfowl season.
