Video: How to jump, shoot ducks

When Duck Lore host Sean Weaver couldn’t make the Kansas waterfowl hunting trip last fall, Seth Morris and I took his place. Now we don’t have the call and lure skills that Sean has, but we can shoot birds with the best of them.

The jump shot is a good move to get out of the bag of tricks when you’re in an unfamiliar place, need to kill some time at noon, or just want meat for the freezer. While the idea of ​​pulling and shooting ducks seems simple, there are a few things to consider before putting the stem in a watering hole.

Here are my top tips for jumping shooting waterfowl. If you want to see all the action from our hunt in Kansas, watch Duck Lore Season 1, Episode 6.
