    Thanks for the suggestions on waterfowl loads. Everything I've read and everyone I've talked to say that steel pretty much is garbage unless you're 25 yards or closer. Going to look into tungsten and bismuth a bit more.

    I don't know that i'd go that far but yes, definitely less knockdown power than lead.

    Super jealous. Gorgeous Ring neck and a band to boot! Getting that bad boy mounted, right?

    It’s actually a bluebill! And one of the guys that I was with is mounting it. It was banded on Long Island, NY.

    Thank you! We get a ton of them on Lake St. Clair too, but I had never even heard of a banded one. After a little bit of research , I found that less than 5 banded lesser scaup are reported in MI each year. Got crazy lucky with that one!

    Had a good weekend of layout shooting! Mostly buffleheads and bluebills with some redheads mixed in.
