What should I put in my duck blind bag?

Because a duck’s eyes are located on either sides of its head, they have a field of vision of nearly 340 degrees. To top it off, ducks have three eyelids and can see in color.
Why do duck hunters paint their faces?
Duck hunters talk about having perfect paint on their decoys, because the ducks can supposedly see the chipped paint. They get flocked heads for goodness sake. Some even go as far as to swear by ultraviolet reflecting paint, invisible to the human eye, on their decoys.

There is nothing “illegal” about shooting a “sitting” duck or goose whether it be on the water or ground. Some say it’s not sporting that waterfowl hunting is a wing-shooting sport.

Under federal law, you actually can‘t hunt waterfowl with a rifle or a pistol, so a. 22 would be a no-go.
